Hi,
I have been using Linux and reading GOL over 3 years now so finally decided to register! :D
There is so much games on Linux these days that I can do 99% of my gaming with it. There is still That other OS lurking somewhere in my hard drive but I really don't need to use it unless I really want to play some special game.
Other than just gaming I'm using Linux for my hobbyist gamedev projects and for learning to program.
Cheers!

Hi,
Quited win because it carries so much task/backgound services non-saying about the big brother issue. I asked myself how many time I would be able to drop it. 4 years later, my own regret is to don't make this choice earlier!
Long life to Linux and obviously to GamingOnLinux!

Hello, I've been using linux on and off for a few years. Arch is my distro of choice. Learning the "Arch way" was definitely tough for me but I like the philosophy behind it. I came from console gaming then to windows pc gaming now linux... I just wish Dark Souls worked on our platform. That's the only thing that kinda pulls at me.

krisguy 11 Sep, 2017

I'm Kris. I've been playing with Linux and FLOSS operating systems for almost twenty years. I work for a company called OPENSOURCEPCs that make laptops with Ubuntu and custom cases (think wraps, engraving, paint, etc). I'm also big into 3D printing and Python, Perl, and just trying to be a nice guy in a world full of trolls.

I'm krisguy787 on most gaming services, and I have a Mixer channel that I use, and a Twitch one I don't. OBS with FTL on Mixer will make you rethink 30-60 second chat delays on Twitch.

Hi everybody !!

I'm Charro, just joined a few days ago after getting aware of the existence of this great site !! I don't know how I didn't find it before.

Linux user since 1997 (wow, 20 years already! I feel quite old ^ ^) and also Game developer, in a professional way and when I find the time, as an indie, for myself (Here is my GitHub and itch.io in case someone wants to try the only game I have right now: https://github.com/charro https://charro.itch.io/spain1940)

I still have dual boot with Windows in my machine, but since long time ago (more than 10 years probably), only and exclusively because still some games don't run properly with Wine.

My only dream is that one day I would finally be able to delete that Windows partition forever because SteamOS is reality and all my Steam lib is there.

About Linux playing right now, I've just finished XCOM: Enemy Unknown (I love it !!) and start playing Shadows of Mordor (REALLY THANK YOU FERAL GAMES FOR MAKING THE PORTING OF THIS GAMES TO LINUX !!)

Cheers !

Hello there. KayKay91 here.

I have found out about Unix in university through one of the Sun Microsystem computers which used CDE desktop and learned some basic Terminal commands (Mainly moving, copying, removing files, extracting tar files etc.). After not doing so well in uni, I've decided to learn about Linux and started off with Ubuntu in 2014 and went on a journey of finding a distro for me:

* Ubuntu
* Elementary OS
* Fedora Creative Suite
* Linux Mint
* Manjaro
* Antergos
* Arch Linux

I have been using my Lenovo IdeaPad Y550 laptop for Linux stuff, while my PC is currently Windows only. Thinking about buying another SSD and HDD just to have both Linux and Windows in it.

EDIT: Forgot to mention, I also try to make Linux Gaming relevant. Mainly by contributing PCGamingWiki.

Hello everyone !

I'm known on the Internet as Desperalaw.

What you only need to know about me is that I'm a 21 years old gamer and Linux user from France !

I'm new in the GamingOnLinux community but I'm certainly not a new Linux user nor a casual gamer haha.

I've used a lot of distributions like :
- Ubuntu (my first one, started with the 9.04 version)
- Debian
- openSUSE
- ArchLinux
- Manjaroo
- Mageia
- Zorin OS
- Linux Mint
- Fedora (I'm currently using Fedora 26 on my main rig)
And many others that I need to try to find the perfect one for me !

As I said I'm a gamer, so I dual boot Windows 10 along my Fedora 26, but thanks to Steam for Linux I can play nearly half of my Game library in Linux.

And as both a Linux gamer and user, I'm contributing to the Wine project by submitting my tests results on the AppDB.

If you wanna play some games with me, don't hesitate to check out my profile and add me on Steam ! ;-)

Thanks for reading and many thanks to liamdawe for creating the GamingOnLinux website and feeding it with news ! :-)

Hello! I’m Tone (not real name), male/mid-20’s/ somewhere in Klang Valley, Malaysia. Doesn’t have any background in tech industry. Knows about Linux since 2003/04 (Red Hat or Lindows forgot already) by my friend’s father. Started using it primarily since 2014 after my paid antivirus subscription ends and Windows XP is nearing EOL at that time. Discovered Gaming on Linux via Google News search about 1.5 years ago and become avid reader since then (Googling about Linux gaming news is still depressing you know). Decided to open GOL account because wanted to give inputs and/or views from Southeast Asia’s perspective.

Thank you for your time and again…
Hello Everyone! :D

Zybersun 3 Feb, 2018

Just joined. Great place. I have been a Linux user since the late 90's. Strictly Linux, no dual boot, etc., for a few years now. I am a gamer but I am not a hardcore gamer, though on occasions I do find a game or two I obsess with, sometimes for years. Lately I have found none or nothing long term. Anyways, Hello All.

I just realised....I've been lurking here for years and never registered...soo...here I am :D
Been using and gaming on Linux since 1995, I still remember the sheer joy of getting the original Unreal working under an early version of Wine lol :D
Anyway, 43 yr old british guy here, use Linux extensively for work and play :D
Recently got addicted to Elder Scrolls Online again, as it's now working properly under Wine again lol, well, that and Eve online and various native Linux games!
I act as an advocate for a few apps and games for Codeweavers Crossover, and post under my real name (I know right???) in wine AppDB, mostly under the ESo section lol :D
