    Some Linux gamers playing Blizzard's Overwatch are on the receiving end of the ban hammer today, and it's suspected that DXVK - a compatibility tool that hooks into WINE to translate DirectX 11 to Linux-compatible graphics API Vulkan -- may be the the source of the problem, albeit not maliciously.

    This is an issue worth highlighting because gaming on Linux has become much more visible in the mainstream press, and a lot of people frustrated with Windows are contemplating the switch. This visibility was propelled by Valve's recent introduction of "Proton," an addition to Steam Play that allows thousands of Windows games to be installed and played directly from the Steam for Linux client.
