I started SteamGamesOnLinux.com around the end of August of 2010, basically as a way to log which Steam games worked with my new Linux desktop.
I know there is already the WineAppDB – and I use it a lot when trying to get my games working – but found that locating specific Steam version test results wasn’t easy…
I also noticed people asking specifically for Steam version tests on the AppDB… so figured that there seemed to be a lot of other Linux gamers out there with Steam accounts that could benefit from my notes.
After around 2-3 months and about 60 games tested – the site was getting around 100+ visitors / day… hmm – maybe I could develop this into the best Steam + Linux gaming site on the net? Maybe….. LoL
It’s now almost 2 years later and the SGOL site is averaging around 13,000 visits / month = way cool + the ads are at paying for the site hosting now :)
So if you are a Linux gamer and would like to see this site grow and reach it’s full potential, please do join up and give some feedback and get involved… your suggestions are appreciated!
