Goldberg Emulator

What kind of emulator is this "Goldberg Emulator" (v0.2.5 reddit news)? It's an emulator to run Steam games that have multiplayer modes without making use of Steam or even the Internet. You can even run those games' multiplayer modes in simulated LAN mode! Where shall this software be put in the wiki - here at the Compatibility Layers page, maybe as a separate section?

It's definitely interesting, though I can't really see how it's an "emulator". From what I can see, it looks like it's just a modified replacement of the Steam API that removes any dependency to actual Steam application. Probably best to put it under the Miscellaneous category for now. -Skylark (talk) 12:32, 23 August 2019 (EDT)

Added MC Bedrock compatibility layer

Feel free to remove if this is too niche or if there's any other issue with it being here, but technically it is a compatibility layer so I added it. -MisterSheeple (talk) 03:44, 14 June 2023 (UTC)

ARM Desktop Devices ?

Current {{Icon|LinuxARM}}(  ) has a Raspbian logo. For things designed for desktop-level ARM computers that are not SBC and not running Raspbian, should they be categorized into PC/x86 category and using {{Icon|Linux}}(  ) ? Randname (talk) 08:31, 3 August 2023 (UTC)

I have a similar issue with Rosetta 2. It's ARM-based but it doesn't belong in the mobile category. Sorting them based on the host OS makes the most sense IMO. Phredreeke (talk) 00:10, 24 January 2024 (UTC)
