Can you run two steam clients on one PC?

I dont know if youve seen any of Linus’ “multiple people 1 pc” videos, but that seems like essentially the same thing.

He was running virtualized Windows environments for that, not using the single windows desktop. He utilized the strong CPU power and virtualized Windows—so that’s not what Linus did. Not saying it’s impossible, but he didn’t do that like you mentioned.

I don’t know much about this but can you run for example two PUBG’s on one pc if you have two steam accounts that own it? Maybe you can use windows “desktop 2,3,4, etc.”

Desktops don't work that way. They are just virtual places for your windows to go. I haven't tried this, but it might be possible, as long as you have two separate install locations.

Like said, there's difference. Linus was using whole another OS. Virtual desktops are within single OS.
