Exactly. It's hard to see a good motive for GOG wanting to push Galaxy so hard, unless it's to try to shift everyone to Galaxy because they plan to do away with the offline installers.
But why would GOG(beyond maybe not needing to do the work to make the offline installers) bother getting rid of such installers and push everyone to galaxy if most go to galaxy willingly anyways?
Well, exactly that. The offline installers represent an overhead that GOG would rather do without. If a larger percentage were using Galaxy, they would have a stronger case to get rid of the installers. There seems to be a fairly clear financial motive to get rid of them.
I would flip your question around and ask: If most are going to Galaxy willing anyway, why the need to push it so heavily?
They are pushing the Galaxy launcher. So, they have a plan to do away the offline installers. And that is all??
A preventive boycot conspiracy based?
Sorry but I am not to be a puppet of this shit ever. And I am going to boycot it If I can.
It's not a conspiracy theory. I have a concern that GOG is moving in the direction of doing away with the installers, based on their continual heavy pushing of Galaxy and the continued lack of maintenence of the installers. To me, those things seem to be pointing in a certain direction, but you are free to draw your own conclusions.
Look, I respect your opinion and if you don't agree with the boycott, that's totally fair enough. But, I don't think you have any business telling others what they can and can't talk about. If you don't like the topic of the thread, don't take part.
