The end of 2020 will shortly be upon us, so we wanted to offer our best wishes to all of our readers. It's been quite a year hasn't it? One to remember, or one to try hard to forget? A bit of both when it comes to the world I think. COVID19 sure did a number on the human race but there is a light at the end of the tunnel for us all it seems.
Through this year we've seen a lot of fun things for Linux gaming including tons of exceptional indie games being released. Certainly hasn't been a dull year! You can see some of my own favourites right here. We also had Vulkan Ray Tracing officially released - finally, that is quite exciting for the future of games. Valve are also continuing to put resources into many different parts of Linux and Linux gaming through Steam Play, driver upgrades, the newer container system and lots more that continue to mature. There's so many moving parts to keep everything exciting that we can't wait to see evolve even further through 2021.
For us here, it's been another knockout year. Just like with 2019, we've seen 2020 be our busiest year on record. Hopefully that trend continues for us and Linux overall, like with the Linux share on Steam continuing to see a slow gradual trend upwards.
If you need help with Linux and / or gaming - remember to hop on over to our Forum. It's a much better place than chat rooms like Discord, Telegram and others because search engines index the forum, and solved issues can be found by others!
As of now, we shall be taking our winter break. So we shall be away and resting between December 24 - 27 and we shall be away again likely December 31 - January 1 (possibly longer). Time to catch up on some of our own games and have that all important family time.
Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year from GamingOnLinux. Here's to hopefully 2021 not being terrible. Stay warm, stay safe and all the best from us.
If you wish to support us you can find out how here.
Yeah, it's cringe... still... a happy holidays greeting for everybody :D
It's recorded and played on Linux (but intro and outro done by somebody else, I don't have those skills).
Wishing everyone a better 2021, glad this year is over, we won't miss you at all 2020
...and thanks for the good work to all the GOL staff!
