Happy Birthday to GamingOnLinux - 14 years old today

By - | Views: 30,624

You may have noticed the website acting up a little lately, well that's because it's well into its teens now. Happy Birthday to GamingOnLinux, the tiny little site I thought no one would visit but here we are 14 years later. Now we see around a million visitors a month, and I still can't quite believe it.

From the early days of Loki and Linux Game Publishing to the launches of the Humble Indie Bundle, Steam for Linux, Proton and the Steam Deck — never a dull moment huh? A big big thank you to everyone who has supported all of this over the years.

Want to help support the GamingOnLinux mission?

You can give your regular support over on  Patreon (which is the best way for me overall). This helps ensure there's not adverts everywhere. Although there is a single spot for a sponsor but it's not really used.

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

You can also buy games using GamingOnLinux affiliate / partner links:

You can find all the links to support GamingOnLinux on this dedicated page any time.

Who knows what the industry will look like in another 14 years. Will we have some sort of chip in our brains? Will Valve count to three finally? How about a new living room Steam Machine? Perhaps we will be on the Steam Deck 5 by then and everyone will be running Linux on their desktop. One can dream right?

Remember you can easily use the RSS Feed to keep up to date. All article tags (at the bottom of articles) also have an RSS feed so you can follow exactly what you want.

Thanks again for being here.

I was there, Gandalf, when Steam for Linux was at its infancy and GoL was a regular poster at Google freakin' Plus (remember that one?). Crazy to think that even that was 10 years ago already...

Happy birthday, GoL, and thanks for all the work!

Congrats and thanks for making a place for others to come to and explore Linux gaming as they see fit. The addition of tag blocking to self-curate the articles has been top tier awesome for me.

Happy Birthday and thanks you for your time Liam!

I'm pretty happy to hear you are seeing such a big number of visitors. I didn't thought it was that many, it's nice.

Hope to see you keep on going.

What a milestone. This site is just amazing, with multiple articles written nearly every day.I remember the dark days (pre-GOL) where one was lucky to find anything Linux gaming-related. This in addition to the YT channel. Simply marvelous.
