acare84: Hmm, they said you won't able to download TOCA and CMR 2005 earlier and released press release about them.

Just checked and I can download both without problems. Both deadlines have come and gone but games remain. Wether or not this means that they stay permanently, we'll just have to wait and see.
This is fantastic!. Way to go, GoG.
Next stop, Mac OS X :P

Navagon: Good to hear! Messiah completely fell apart on me in Windows 7. That's the only one so far though.

Well, Messiah has always been unplayable for me in Vista (massive lag), so that's not surprising. That's the only GOG game I've never been able to play though.

Only in your wildest, my friend... only in your wildest.
I'm a patient guy :)

Perhaps this should be stickied until the day comes?
Also I was wondering, when all games are verified for 7, will you stop XP and/or Vista support for future titles? Probably should!

To limit down customers who don't use Win 7? What an excellent idea...

Yes, just like they stopped supporting XP when Vista compatibility was announced... oh, wait, they didn't.

It runs fine in XP though. But despite having a dual boot with XP I'm not particularly keen on going back to it.

Kingoftherings: Got 90% of my games backed up to DVDs right now, hopefully I won't have to redownload and burn too many games. :/

I'm in the same case as you, all games backed up to DVDs.
Anyway, good news from GOG. I appreciate it.

XP Mode has NO 3D acceleration (it emulates an old S3 Trio card), and it is NOT the magical key to get everything working flawlessly. I am starting to get angered at this ignorance, perhaps I should just try to ignore this type of posts in the future.
Microsoft VirtualPC is just a virtual machine, similar to VMWare Workstation, or VirtualBox. XP Mode is VPC's version of VMWare's Unity, or VirtualBox' Seamless mode - that is, possibility to run the virtual machine with its windows intertwined with those of the host system. See this image of an application running both natively in Windows 7 and through XP Mode (it is installed on both the host machine, and the virtual machine, not a single install running on both), compared to this image, where the virtual machine is fully contained in a single window.

Calm down Miaghstir. ;)
Not everyone bought Win7 at launch October 22, and not everyone bought the professional or ultimate edition to actually see for himself how it is implemented in the final build. I didn't and I'm still using WinXP and Linux for some time.

Hey, I didn't resort to rage. I was at least trying to inform the uninformed.
