By - | Views: 23,702

Can you believe it? GamingOnLinux is now officially 13 years old and that suddenly makes me feel quite old.

This time last year we were all excited about whatever the "Steampal" turned into, and wow it certainly was better than we all imagined right? The Steam Deck has been a huge boon for everything Linux gaming even pushing us up in the Steam Hardware Survey recently.

If you can donate or regularly support us, here's where you can do so: Firstly, if you wish to get specific reward tiers and access to special things sometimes you can do so on Patreon (which is the best way for us). Unlike many websites, we don't have adverts littering the screen. We do wish to remain that way, however we do have a single spot on our Patreon tiers for a single sponsor to have a small spot before comments.

All other donations, without any special rewards can be done by:

As always, our inbox is open if you wish to know anything or you wish us to work on a feature to improve the site. Always happy to hear from readers and game developers. Check out our contact page on how to reach us.

Thank you to everyone who is part of the community, it's great to see so many comments every day and a big thank you to the contributors for a few articles and help moderating.

A longer than usual livestream will be going on today / tonight, so be sure to follow on Twitch!

Quoting: gbudnyThis is great!

I'm pretty sure that I saw somewhere articles from 2009, but I can't find anything:

"Welcome to GamingOnLinux
By Liam Dawe, 1 Apr, 2010"

I tied to use, but I couldn't do it:

Happy birthday! Thanks for being one of the few places to go for news about games specifically for Linux, especially when other similar sites disappeared years ago.
