That sounds great, and we're super excited, but what does it all mean exactly?
Here are some of the questions you may have before getting started:
Which Linux distributions do you support?
We test and support our games on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and Mint 17 LTS.
Are you planning to add official support for more Linux distributions?
We promise to always offer support for the most recent LTS release of Ubuntu and Mint.
There are no plans to officially support other Linux distributions at this time, sorry.
Will GOG games work on other distributions anyway?
You're more than welcome to give it a try, but we cannot guarantee that everything will work without a hitch.
That means we won't be able to offer refunds, or support, for technical issues on a Linux distribution other than Ubuntu 14.04 LTS or Mint 17 LTS.
What is Wine? Why do you label games that use it?
Wine is a compatibility layer that implements a Windows environment on Linux machines.
Wine carries some inherent performance and stability disadvantages. We place great importance on testing and building Wine games to make sure they are up to our standards of quality and performance, and we will support and stand by these releases. At the same time we recognise that this may not be an ideal solution for everyone, and that some of our users approach Wine with a healthy bit of scepticism.
We feel that it's your right, as our customer, to be informed about any traces of the Wine wrapper on Linux.
That's the gist of it, but there are still questions left unanswered.
