In June 2012 development begun on the RootGamer website. Our mission; to bring awareness of the growing Linux gaming community and show Windows-gamers the potential and benefits from a Linux platform.
Stats, pie and charts
We opened the website to the public, the moment Steam 4 Linux Beta news surfaced. Lot has changed ever since; we have been featured in a Linux magazine, attended user group meetings, given a lecture about Linux game development, introduced Rootrivia for you to win games and we have a lot more interesting events planned for you next year!!
During this first year the RootGamer Team has written 390 articles covering over 200+ projects, discussed by the community in 422 comments. We delivered Linux Gaming news to you and 189.094 Unique visitors from 192 Countries who requested 2.252.471 Pages, generating about 183,18GB traffic in total. Enough to download the entire website 70 times, including the 485,59MB SQL database and 150MB Downloads.
Most viewed post got 29.180 hits, however another popular article received 67 thumbs up. According to piwik analytic, Windows(45%) is the OS of choice, not by much Linux(43%) doesn’t include Android(~5%). Your browser of choice is Chrome(43%) followed by Firefox(35%).. almost forgot to mention Internet Explorer(6%).
The website is hosted on a shared/virtual machine, provided with 2 CPU cores a minimal 1GB ram and 4GB virtual memory, which seems to be insufficient lately.
Thank you for supporting RootGamer!!!
