Welcome to the new and much the same GamingOnLinux

New server who dis? Hello again. GamingOnLinux just did a full server migration and so if you’re seeing this, welcome back home, please wipe your feet at the door.

We’ve successfully moved over to AlmaLinux from a nearing EOL CentOS, to ensure that GamingOnLinux can continue operating long into the future on a modern server software platform. That and the server is all clean, shiny and ever-so-slightly better than the previous one. I also took this time to add in some increased security options and an extra backup system too.

I would like to use this moment to give a huge thank you to all our supporters for keeping the lights on! You’re wonderful, beautiful people — the best people. And of course thank you to everyone who joins in commenting on articles and entering the depths of the Forum.

Want to help support GamingOnLinux? See below!

Firstly, the best way is regular support via Patreon. For Patreon, a suggestion is to pledge around the start of a month, as it charges at the beginning of every month. Generally the Patreon is just to have regular funding to keep bringing you the news (and some videos on YouTube - you can also be a YouTube Member!). 

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

You can also bookmark and buy games using our affiliate/partner links (and they really do help!):

You can find all the links to support us on our dedicated page any time.

Thank you for continuing to read and support GamingOnLinux!

A quick extra reminder: you can click every single tag on an article, to show a full feed of articles with that tag. Each tag also has an RSS feed attached to it like these examples with Open Source or Distro News or Native Linux or Steam Deck. So you can easily use an RSS feed of what you want, or bookmark specific tags to visit. 

Did you also notice the Thunderbird banner recently? We have 1 slot on Patreon to get a little extra funding from a single sponsor and Thunderbird graciously offered to join for a little while. Big thank you to Thunderbird for the support!

Please report general issues and suggestions via this forum.

Patreon's... definitely not my first choice, considering some of the stuff they've pulled over the past few years, but I appreciate there's at least another option (even if Paypal is *also* scummy... But pick your poison, I guess).

Glad to see it all going to good use and making this better for everyone! We appreciate the work you do. <3
