Happy Birthday to GamingOnLinux - 15 years old today

By - | Views: 42,523

Are those some spots I see in the mirror? Must be the teens. GamingOnLinux, the website, is another year older today and I'm still blown away by what we've achieved together. 15 years! I can hardly believe it.

This year, amazingly, I don't have a whole lot to talk about for this article. Why? Well, things are — great? Looking back over the years of website birthdays at things I've talked about we've been through the Steam Machines, Proton, Steam Deck and so much more. Right now, it's the best Linux gaming has ever been. It's easier than ever. What a fantastic place to be in.

Special thanks to our furious Discord moderator and supporter dpanter for sending over a cake:

Thanks again for being here and I hope you stick around for a very long time to continue this journey.

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.

I still fondly remember checking the site at nights during my military service times. If Liam was wondering who the hell was browsing the site with Opera Mini on Symbian OS running in Nokia 700 around 2016-2017, it was me. 🙃
