I really wish GOG would go Microsoft already and force Galaxy, updates and whatever else so I don't have to keep up with all the bullshit and know not to buy here again.
I am on the verge too, after I've seen the KasperHviid's illustration image. It's bad practice to installing client like this. Like in some shady page with bootleg. This really put GOG down. I don't know if rest of the people is numbed enough to not care and we (who are complaining) are just strange or what.
What I don't understand is that those who come from Steam or elsewhere are happy to have a client, so why bother those who don't want to hear about it? They could make everyone happy by having the files on the website and allowing users to install from Galaxy. There, easy and done.
Take Sundered for example, I think it's only DRM-free on GOG, so what choice do I have? The only place that gives you an installer is GOG, and they want to move away from that. I don't hate any of the clients, but it's because I know what I'm getting if I choose to use them. GOG is being shifty, just like Uplay used to be, and maybe still is.
