shaddim: Ii was not. It was from some normal forum member (and steam fan boy) following a previous thread: http://oldforums.gearboxsoftware.com/showthread.php?p=5201630#post5201630

shmerl: I had a discussion with them, and it seems the site is full of clueless people who think Steam is a solution for all problems. I'm not really interested in such environment. They closed the thread, as apparently they aren't interested in DRM-free releases. I'm not interested in their games then.
Reading this discussion I wonder if there'd be any downsides in a split multiplayer community.
I'd have no problem only playing with the DRM-free crowd, in fact I'd prefer to do it so (not that I'm a multiplayer gamer at all).

Oh and this quote is nice:

"If consumers even know there's a DRM, what it is, and how it works, we've already failed."

Interesting quote indeed (here is the source by the way). While it's saying that DRM is likely to fail, it's also wicked at the same time, since he's trying to say that they'd prefer DRM to be well hidden (secret surveillance, hehe) in order not to trigger users to its malicious presence.

Underworld Ascendant project by OtherSide Entertainment now includes Linux release in its base goal!

You can back them on Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/othersidegames/underworld-ascendant

Over the last 2 weeks a number of folks have been asking about Mac and Linux versions. From our forum poll on platforms, we’ve also learned that a larger percentage of you play on Mac or Linux than we had anticipated. There is also some information suggesting that a non-trivial number of people who have come to check out the Underworld Ascendant Kickstarter page move on as soon as they see that we’re only showing Windows support up front.

So… we have decided to roll Mac and Linux support into the base funding goal. There are tradeoffs when moving around features within a budget, but this seems worthwhile. One tradeoff is that it will likely mean we’ll need to hold off for a month or possibly longer to release the Mac and Linux versions following the initial Windows release (staging it this way helps to minimize budget impact.)

If making this change brings in new backers and funding, then it will all be a wash, as we’ll be that much more likely to go past our first stretch goal. We do suggest that our Mac and Linux backers take a peek at a tier or two above where they are currently pledged...

So Witcher 3 for Linux is coming after all?

CDPR / GOG should really comment on this.
