I'm sticking with my Steam Deck ever the ASUS ROG Ally — and not just for its battery life

Most of the concerns here could pretty quickly be resolved by the user.

Enable tablet mode for fullscreen navigation & single application focus (like an Android tablet).

Use Steam Big Picture for Game Launching. I won't be surprised if Steam Big Pictures controller mapping will work with the Ally pretty quickly as well.

In return for those two changes you get to completely avoid the will it won't it work of SteamOS with a device thats vastly more powerful.

The elephant in the room is people expect a console like experience with these handhelds whilst also wanting the flexibility of PC, which isn't going to happen until Microsoft drops a Xbox Series S Handheld (which it almost certainly will IMO). One does feel like a decent SOE Architect at ASUS could get the OoBE to achieve most of what I listed.

Now of course we get to Armoury Crate, ASUS software sucks, and for anyone not savvy enough to completely bypass it, will be like an Achilles heel.
