My vote goes to Staging. More bugs are fixed with Staging, and it has additional features and performance improvements.

Did dropping Staging really fix this? I've used Staging in other distros (using it now in Fedora 25) and have never seen this happen outside of Solus.

I have automatic unattended updates daily

We don't automatically install updates so I fail to see how that's applicable here.

Espionage724 added a comment to T700: A more reliable WINE .

Is the decision to move to regular Wine final for now? I mainly play two games with Wine (Guild Wars 2 and Path of Exile), and both require CSMT to play ideally. GW2 loses FPS without it (about 10-20 FPS depending on the scenario), and PoE becomes a flickering mess without it unless I disable the in-game multithreading (which also lowers FPS a bit).

Although on a different note, will Staging be provided as a separate package? CSMT is kind of nice for some games/setups.

There's a game called K-Shoot Mania and it doesn't render at all under Wine Staging. Interestingly enough, it renders and plays (mostly) under regular Wine.

Could this be related to "BD PROCHOT"? From what I've heard, it seems that is the cause of unnecessary throttling in some computers.

I did a clean install of Solus and vsftpd a bit ago and pam_service_name="login" doesn't seem to work. However, pam_service_name=login does (no quotes around login), so it seems vsftpd is a little strict on that.

As I understand, upstream Wine won't take Gallium Nine patches since they only benefit Linux. I'm not sure if Staging will take it, but I assume they either follow the same reason, or have their own reasoning if they didn't take it already.

In my case, I have a HTPC that's used for games, media (Kodi), and serving files to other machines (in this case, other set-top boxes for Kodi and just general backup/restore). Having vsftpd on this computer means one less machine using network resources for playing back media. I would like to run Solus on it for consistency (all my other computers will also be running it), and I like that it would receive rolling updates.

Yes. There doesn't appear to be an audio device presented to 32-bit apps. A quick way to test is to install 32-bit wine, create a 32-bit prefix, run winecfg and go to the Audio tab. No audio device is presented and Test Sound doesn't work.
