What makes you assume they're just ignoring Linux users all together? not saying they are or are not because no one but GOG staff really know what is going on, which is the point it's just a assumption based on lack of feedback on what their plans are but that is typical of any company really. Yes it wouldn't hurt to say "hey guys we know you are interested in seeing us support linux and we are looking into it" but as soon as that is said people will be hounding them for more info after sometime has past or worse yet they are unable to do it(look don't use that last part as anything more than a example of a worse case scenerio), in other words it is a damned if you do or damned if you don't situation so often the best course is not to say anything, yes you're still pissing people off but not to the extent that will happen if something was said especially anything related to them supporting linux followed by nothing.
shmerl: I think it is fair to say - buy DRM free games elsewhere if you are getting native Linux versions. If GOG cares about Linux users, they should stop ignoring them. If they don't care, then they are indifferent to Linux users buying elsewhere as well.
in short It's just better to make a announcement or at least say something when you actually have something or if you know it's never going to happen.
