That's right, this writer for a Windows site says you shouldn't buy a Steam Deck and put Windows on it.
No, you didn't read the headline wrong. Yes, I really am about to tell anyone who reads this that it would be foolish to buy a Steam Deck and install Windows 10 or even Windows 11 on it.
I can already feel the comments.
But it's true. Even though Valve says you can install Windows on a Steam Deck, it would be a pretty terrible idea and nobody should do it. Just because it is a PC doesn't mean you should completely forego the stock experience.
