Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from GamingOnLinux

By - | Views: 58,471

It's coming up on Christmas now, and so GamingOnLinux will be going into it's usual mostly hibernating state to take a little break to recharge. Apart from any sudden big stories that appear, or just plain boredom from me (or guest contributions), you can expect news to be rather quiet over the next week.

A big thank you to all supporters, commenters and readers for an absolute knock-out of a year that smashed through pretty much every record I think we've ever had for everything. It continues to be a real pleasure to run GamingOnLinux and follow how Linux gaming continues to evolve.

Just a reminder that if you wish to support me and GamingOnLinux the links are available here any time which includes the affiliate store links to buy games while also supporting GamingOnLinux.

GamingOnLinux will return to properly normal operations around January 3rd, 2024.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and have a wonderful and safe New Year celebration!

I am the owner of GamingOnLinux. After discovering Linux back in the days of Mandrake in 2003, I constantly came back to check on the progress of Linux until Ubuntu appeared on the scene and it helped me to really love it. You can reach me easily by emailing GamingOnLinux directly.

Have a great Christmas and New Year, Liam, and, of course, thanks for running GOL in the first place!

I'll try not to let my robots blow anything up while you're gone.

Liam you and the Gaming On Linux site are corner stones of the Linux gaming community. I visit it several times every day and it's a big reason why this became the year I finally left Windows. No dual boot or backup PC in the closet, I'm fully on Linux now. I look forward to next year and all the exciting things happening in the Linux gaming space, and I look forward to you reporting about them :) Happy holidays!
Mohandevir Dec 22, 2023
Take care Liam!

I wish you happy holidays and a happy new year. Let it be as much rest as possible and plenty of good times with friends and/or family.

Read you in 2024!
