"Add Linux versions of games" is now #4 in the Requested Site Features category, having recently surpassed the "Increasing number of games compatible with Win7" request. There are plenty of other Linux related requests as well.

Instead of infuriating the community by introducing regional pricing, why not actually give the community what it wants; what it has voted for? Surely a smart business pleases its customers, no? As has been said, if GOG is willing to drop one of its founding principles, then all Linux related excuses are void. They were poor to begin with anyway.

A GOG employee dropped a very subtle hint about Linux support. More hope, more tears? Oh, well, keep voting!

Great news although I don't even know what is GOG. Now there's no excuse for gamers to stay on Windows forever in the future :)

GOG.com is a game store, which sells 100% DRM-free games. it stands for "good old games", because it sold a lot of old (windows) games in the beginning. nowadays, you find old, older, and a lot of indie games on GOG.com.

for everybody, who is looking for legal DRM-free games, GOG.com and (sometimes) humble indie bundles are the most prominent sources.

We're initially going to be launching our Linux support on GOG.com with the full GOG.com treatment for Ubuntu and Mint.

What's that mean?  They're only package them as .deb or what?

Mint, Ubuntu supported..

Bought couple of games and I get segmentation fault on Fragile Allegiance when I click "enter asteroid view" -button. And on X3: Terran War Pack I get semi-random crashes.
I mean, if we really want to enjoy new linux support GOG has provided, we should have some kind of tutorial how to workaround the dosbox/wine issues on manjaro/arch... since there is no official support by GOG.com

Is there a way to run GOG provided start.sh script with Steam runtime? eg. with ubuntu32 libraries? Could it work?
