Hello! My name is Lupus, coming live from the Balkans. Onwards to my late 20s, already feeling old and rusty.

Been following the Linux world for quite a while, until one night when suddenly, my Windows decided to do the job for me and commit sudoku. 🔪+💽=🔥

So, with a sizeable loss of data, and my sanity going down the drain, I figured that this would be the perfect opportunity in time and space to join the party. Fast forward a month into the future, a botched attempt at installing the drivers for the GPU, a couple of botched attempts at installing and configuring WINE [no worries, it now works amazingly well] and there I am, figuring out the basics for how to NOT make your own life even more insane.

Here I am now, an Ubuntu user, running most of my non-Linux native games via Wine/Proton, helping the Warzone 2100 community with music and somehow managing to still be alive, meeting more and more people and making friends, so many that I can't even count them on my fingers and toes, following the FOSS news and watching closely the return of the RTS golden era.

Here's to a bright future to Linux! 🍻

After so many Intro's I thought I'd jump on the bandwagon, I'm in my mid 30's and from the UK, and have been dabbling in Linux for about 6 years. I still use Windows equally for Work (90% Windows Server Environment) Would be more Linux if I had my way!

I've generally ran Pop/Fedora and lately EndeavourOS ( they have nice wallpapers as stock ;-) ). I'm mainly a gamer and the little free time I have to relax due to family commitments I like to sit back a play a nice single player or Co-op with some mates although those mates are dropping like flies with real life time but hey that's life.

After many years of a bright future and evolving Linux community, lets hope it continues to flourish!

just registered on the forum and wanted to say Hello.
Im an oldtime gamer (started with the ZX-81 and then Commodore 64 back in the good old days) and have been playing Games for most of my life. I jumped into Linux 2 years ago and finally got rid of Windows.

Im trying to get my whole game collection running under linux which is working so far way better than expected.

hi everyone,
so 3 years ago windows 10 did an update that was unusable on 3 of our computers.

my daughters and my sons computers were using ASUS motherboards and amd AM4 cpus
mine was an FX series motherboard with AM3+ cpu ( system broke down about sept-oct 2022)untill christmas of 2022

daughter could only game on windows 7 and sometimes linux
son could only game on linux at least until it locked up/ froze

mine was triple boot with Win 7, Win 10 (until it couldnt ) Linux Mint

my new system:
motherboard - Gigabyte B450M DS3H V2
CPU - Ryzen 5 3600
ram - Corsair Vengeance 3600mhz 16gig
graphics - RX 550 4gig DX12 capable
drives - crucial P1 500gig, 4TB USB WD, 4TB USb Seagate
dual boot - win10 (finally a stable build ) Linux Mint Debian Edition 5

Hi there!

My name is ipkpjersi. It's nice to meet you all.

I like Linux, programming, anime, and gaming. It's a combo that I share in common with a few of my friends, and it's a combo I enjoy quite a bit.

I've been on Linux full time since 2017 starting with Ubuntu 16.04 and I am now on Ubuntu 22.04, using xfce desktop environment all the while. I currently have a desktop with an AMD Ryzen 9 5900X and ASUS RTX 4070 TUF with 32GB of ECC RAM (yes, I am a nerd) and a 2TB WD Black SN770 SSD with 6x6TB WD Red Pros.
Hi all,

My name is Stephen, and I have more than one alias that I use online, but for now I am also JumpArtifact.

I'm a programmer (currently studying for a Masters in Computer Science), and a gamer, and I also dabble in music sometimes. I am most comfortable programming in C++, but I also program in Rust. In some contexts, I use C/C++ when it is easier than Rust (such as in embedded programming where there is better C support than Rust support), but usually I use Rust to avoid C/C++ foot-guns. I also know a handful of other languages for other use cases, but I am a Rust supporter and am not afraid to fall-back to C/C++ if needed.

Since after my freshman year in university (like at least a decade ago), I switched to Linux as my daily driver. I think I started with Fedora or Ubuntu (I don't remember exactly which I used when I fully switched), but I eventually settled on Arch. I have a personal "custom" repo for all the AUR packages I use, so that it is easier to update my Arch machines that use the same AUR packages.

I joined the Gaming on Linux forums because I think it would be nice to have chats about common interests, and I haven't frequented other forums like I used to.

Hi, I'm Amatai, which is very strange because I don't use this pseudo anywhere else.

I'm a French mechanical engineer and PHD student in civilian engineering (those two are not the same).

I use Linux since 2009 and Linux exclusively since 2015. I have started using Linux because I believe in Free Software value but then keep using it as I like the software better. I'm now very frustrated when using Windows which crash most of the time I use it for more than one hour (well I do computational mechanics, not the most kind of software, there is a reason why no supercomputer use Windows).

I play mostly space games, strategy game and weird eastern European games (mostly Ukrainian as I discovered last year).

I read Gaming on Linux daily since 2013. I'm very grateful to Liam for everything he did for the Linux gaming community. Asking relentlessly for Linux version of games gives us many more Linux games that we would have instead. Well proton gives us that now, but I grew tired of Windows way before that.

I use Arch, btw.
Quoting: amataiI use Arch, btw.
LOL..... Ok..... You get a like for that......

I'm a long time Linux desktop user, long time GOL lurker, and I occasionally pop in to hatniX and Samsai's weekly livestreams. I've also worked on Wolfenstein: Blade of Agony Chapter 2 and Chapter 3.

Good to be here!
Airapport Jul 5

I'm Alex, game developer from Ukraine. Also I'm known as Airapport and by such games as Steampunk Idle Spinner, Idle Tower Builder or Engineer Millionaire.

My first laptop which I bought in 2011 had OpenSuse 11.4 Recently I ported my incremental/resource management/building games to Linux (used Ubuntu 20.6 for this) and going to share them with the community
