It would be great if you could start adding the Linux version of the titles which already have a native port, like "Legend of Grimrock". Also, DOSbox is available for Linux thus all DOS Games could be marked as running under Linux.
Thanks for your great platform!

This would be good. I might actually buy games here once some Linux versions are available.

Two or three times I now have bought a game on Steam, which was also available at GOG, just because they support Linux. Supporting this OS here is a wise decision.

Funny, so funny. I remember when GOG told me they did not want Linux games, due to the so called; " No Market For Them". They should of excepted Linux games ages ago, instead of thing they are always right. Linux games is the way forward. I would also like to point out that even that steam is DRM, there have been some non-DRM games newly coming out for steam, so get to work! And as developer i enjoy making games for the Linux platform more than windows.

I am ecstatic about this. I recently switched to Linux as a result of being extremely dissatisfied with everything Microsoft, and it'll be great to be able to play again on my primary system. Thank you so much!!

I'm absolutely thrilled that GOG is finally taking steps towards Linux support. It's a huge step for Linux itself - gaming is high on the list of Linux "cons". GOG could be a game changer for many people. I don't care a lot about the latest 3D graphics and lately I've been happy with Android gaming, but being able to play Settlers or Rainbow Six on my Linux rig - it's a dream come true!

One of the reasons (besides DRM-free, of course) because I have great expectations about GOG (I'm new in this community).

I only want to ask you only one thing about this Linux subject, which is, when you label a game as Linux, please let it be native (otherwise (ports), please put a warning message somewhere in games' details that it's Linux but not native).

Why? Because otherwise, we as clients feel misleaded if you label as Linux but it's not native (every Windows game in market, when it says that it's for Windows, it means it's native, then why Linux case shouldn't be treated in the same way?).

Case: In Steam, for example, there are some games that are labeled as Linux, but they're not native AND it's stated nowhere in the page, so we some "Linuxers" buy those games just to realize afterwards that it's only through Wine (or other ports), and the quality is worse by far the expected as in Windows, and sometimes it can't be even playable (here's a real example (I recently bought it): http://store.steampowered.com/app/232050/?snr=1_7_15__13, and forum thread (no answer from devs nor from steam): http://steamcommunity.com/app/232050/discussions/0/522729358652683396/).

Greetings.

Thank you for putting this 'in progress' gog, it's awesome to know that you're actively working on this. You may want to consider getting into cahoots with humblebundle.com, since you're coming out with GOG galaxy and Linux game support, they appear to already have platformed a lot of it out.

"In progress". Glad to see it. I think hasn't to be a problem for GOG to have the Linux versions too. I use Linux but I buy prefer to buy games on GOG even if they don't have the Linux version. We, the "linuxers", know that can be compatibility issues, we only need to have the Linux version if already exists. I think that GOG could be planning to add it with Galaxy, to install linux version like in Steam and have less problems

I would love to buy The Last Federation in its flash sale, but if I do it here, I won't have the Linux version. This is a missed opportunity for you guys! Even if you don't have the time to check that Windows games run on Wine, just enable Linux versions for games which already have them. Add a very large *unstable* warning if you want to avoid picky users from complaining...

Glad to see this finally marked as In Progress. The lack of Linux versions has been the one thing that's kept me buying some games on Steam despite the DRM (although in fairness, quite a lot of Linux titles on Steam are in fact DRM-free once downloaded; that is, they have no dependencies on Steam in order to actually run).

I am also in favor of the platform agnostic downloader, and in favor of community driven installation/support packs.
F.I. Download the windows version of freespace, and then have the option to download the community supported pre-compiled open source free space engine...
Same with a lot of scummvm games, or neverwinternights 1.

Latest operating system from M$, "fullscreen 8" have made Linux and ‎Mac OS X more impotent than ever, for disktop computers.

my opinion of win 8 is:
8 is a battered 7 only much worse and with a completely wrong ui.
Apps in 8 is dumped down programs that don't work in windows, thus I call it fullscreen 8.

Having The Witcher 2 available for Linux is awesome news, and as I told you, I'm putting my money where my mouth is. I purchased both Witcher games again on Steam (I already had them here) to show you my support.
So basically I'm just passing by to tell you: thank you for proving me wrong!

Steam just announced Linux support for Witcher 2, let's hope GoG will soon follow!
Also, it would be great if GoG would allow system-agnostic downloads for DOS and SCUMM games (you can simply staple "Advanced mode, proceed with caution!" to it). Yes, I know you can simply use a POL script, but that's just a bit silly - "Let's play the game on a emulator within a compatibility layer on a virtual drive".

Extremely sought for feature, which often makes me prefer Steam over GoG when buying old games. Thanks to the community it is _usually_ possible to install and run the games on Linux, but the official support is more than desired.
