steam: "we'd like to do a hardware survey to make sure we support linux well!"

me: .... okay

steam: "you have a core i7 but because it's a linux laptop, it probably doesn't support AVX2"

[joke explanation: AVX2 is a vector math extension that intel added in 2013 so yes every fucking core i7 purchased in 2021 has it, but steam's detector is so windows-biased that it's useless]
