9 years! Who would have thought that many years ago we would be here writing about Linux games every day with a full inbox. We officially turn 9 this Thursday, so it's likely the livestream on that day will be a bit of a celebration, so be sure to follow us on Twitch.

I just took a look at some of the account profile numbers similar to mine. Profile number 1 is Liam of course, profile number 2 no longer exists, then you have MaximB who directed me to GOL in the first place back in 2009 from his own Linux gaming blog, followed by two people who have not logged on since around the time they first joined, before you finally get me clocking in at number 6. Next active poster is at number 12.

I am officially claiming my right to be called a Great Old One and demanding a holiday home be built for me in R'lyeh.

I seem to recall when account creation first started, but I tend to lurk a long time without creating accounts, lol! Thanks Liam for sticking around, and only quitting for short periods both times.

iiariHard to imagine a Linux gaming world without GOL. Everyone please donate! Thanks for all the hard work, and Happy Birthday!
Without GOL championing Linux as a viable gaming platform would Valve have even looked at it?

I also think this is a great site and really depend on it for Linux-related stuff; I think gaming is a big part of where the Linux action is these days, and really exposes a lot of important issues for the platform as a whole. 'Cause it's like, problems that the rest of Linux has a tendency to grumble about a bit and let slide, become glaring issues for game performance and ease of development, and so a lot of the most important commentary and work on them is done in a gaming context. So I don't just get my gaming fix on here, I get a lot of my Linux news in general.

GustyGhost30, 40, 50 are only significant because we use a base 10 system.
True, then again I personally couldn't give any less f*cks about my numeric age.
8, 40, 111, 10000...

Anyhoo, it will be a little bit extra special next year when GoL turns 10.
