Last post on this topic: since I’m the one who started the derail, I’ll finish it. Just want to say you folks are doing good work. Shadow works. I stream VR from Shadow, which is a very latency-sensitive application, and while it’s noticeably worse than from a local PC, it’s still definitely playable. Non-VR stuff just works–you can’t really tell that you’re not on a local PC. And I’m in San Diego, which I believe is like 500 miles from the nearest Shadow datacenter.
My only hangup with Shadow–and the main reason I recently (sorry @Menzo) cancelled my sub–is that it doesn’t allocate enough space on individual shards. It got really old having to delete and reinstall games every time I wanted to play something new.
