Debian has docker for a while already. The package is called docker.io

Docker is now included in Ubuntu 14.04. From the latest news on the Ubuntu website: "Ubuntu 14.04 LTS also integrates the latest container technologies from Docker and LXC" and "... we are very excited to see Docker in an official Ubuntu archive with 14.04..." Also, Docker is already included in newer RedHat/Fedora platforms and it is available on all Linux platforms. I hope with this technology being available right now, GOG will open up their products to all Linux platforms. The Ubuntu news link: http://insights.ubuntu.com/news/ubuntu-14-04-lts-the-cloud-platform-of-choice/ Learn more about Docker at: https://www.docker.io/

This is another area that Steam is gaining a foothold in. I'd rather them not maintain a monopoly.

@badman35: GOG will probably make one, but whether it will be open or not - isn't really clear yet. There is a community GOG downloader (which is open):
https://github.com/Sude-/lgogdownloader


Discussion thread:
https://secure.gog.com/forum/general/lgogdownloader_gogdownloader_for_linux


You can vote for GOG's downloader / updater client to be opened up as well:

I'm looking forward to this. Our emtire household now runs on Linux (though I still get greif from my spouse over iTunes...) I'm looking forward to not having to gut the Windows versions to get them going on Linux.

I'm super happy to see this as well. I've been buying a lot of newer games for Linux from other places since they carry the Linux version. GOG.com will see more of these purchases from me. I'm also very very keen to see the good old games getting Linux support!

@ast486: I think Master of Magic already perfectly works in DosBox. I doubt GOG can make a native Linux version of it. Wrapping it for convenience - that may be.

This is excellent news! Linux is my only platform and I'd love to play (more) games on it as well. Up until recently (until Steam released a number of games for Linux that is), I've mostly programmed for fun...

now that gog is supporting linux, it will be my primary go-to website for games. after the move from windows to gnu/linux i left gog (sadly) because of the lack of support, now that they seem to be embracing the future i'm back in line and proud to be part of the digital revolution. in terms of games, i would love to see the thief/hitman series get a native gnu/linux release. cheers.

huge news, I've been a linux only user for over 8 years. I've bought only a couple of games since they have to be compatable with wine, and I usually dont want to deal with all the issues. My votes are to bring neverwinter nights 1 which already has a linux client, but is getting increasingly harder to install over time, and the original witcher to go along with the witcher 2...some of us dont have fancy new hardware ;-)

There's really no reason not to go Linux. Many of these games are powered by DOSBox, which already has a Linux version released. The effort required to support Linux, at least to some extent, is laughably low.

Have you tried running the ancient Loki ports anytime recently? At least the ones that I have are pretty messy to get running at all on a modern distro. Running the windows versions on Wine is much easier and probably even works better, not to even mention that the ports suffer from issues that the Windows versions don't; things like compatibility with expansions, no netplay with the windows version, or the cinematics having been recompressed to crappy mpeg.
