@Linux4Everyone wait, so gnome gets deleted when you install steam?

@TheFreePenguin @Linux4Everyone Not usually. There was a bug where that happened for a really brief amount of time. It just so happens a popular Youtuber got bitten by the bug while he was doing a test run of Linux.

@mike @TheFreePenguin @Linux4Everyone the bug was unfortunate for sure and my takeaway was that Linux needs slightly better worded warnings for major changes like that. To me, having to type out an entire phrase to continue is a HUGE red flag, definitely warranting reading what it was going to do and maybe reconsidering. But that's as someone who understands unlike Windows, Linux will delete its own core if you ask it to.
