Opening the source code of the Galaxy client, or parts of it would allow the community to contribute to the client development and avoid multiple unofficial clients to lag behind the official one.

Down the page is mention of my suggestion: integrate with Lutris. Galaxy and Lutris should be working together in a FOSS arrangement. Lutris has enormous community support, so you basically get an army of volunteers figuring out the hacks to make your Windows-only games work on Linux. <br /> Don't just open-source Galaxy; throw your support behind Lutris and integrate Lutris recipes into Galaxy for a huge compatibility boost.

It could be ideal, could fix some of the problems people have now, be more secure and such, open to more plataforms, i don't know if this could go in hand with the Free-DRM policy GOG have, but it's pretty much close, best wish!

FOSS rules. The marketing would easily offset possible downsides. People into GOG tend to be admirers of this culture, privacy-conscious, and similar. Plus, it would cather to purists still resisting a digital store. And yeah, imagine your own customers improving your product for free?

That'd be awesome. <br /> <br /> Also, in response to some others in the comments: no, open-sourcing code does not make software insecure, it actually makes it more secure by allowing everyone to audit it in some way, not to mention making it more ethical and private. Projects including Android, Linux, Firefox, Chromium, VLC, Gimp, OBS, LibreOffice, Signal, OpenSSH, Apache, and countless others are all free and open source software (FOSS). Linux is used by countless organizations, governments, and businesses; it's even the main OS used on the ISS. It's safe to say that if it wasn't for FOSS, the internet, and the world, wouldn't be anything like it is today.

Open-source is the ideal, but if that's impossible, at least flatpak it if you ever release it on Linux! A sandboxed closed-source app is better than nothing.

@Hmz27: the GPLv3 allows the use of DRM, but due to the nature of the licence, they'd need to be GPL'd too, greatly reducing their efficiency.

I saw the in-progress icon but nothing has happened for a while, if it was open-source this would be easy to follow up on Github or something surely? <br /> <br /> (I still think GPLv3 would be best for anti-DRM)

I've never voted on a Galaxy wish before, because I don't have any interest in Galaxy. But an open source version would allow people to put in the features they want and remove the features they don't. That would be awesome. For example, I'd love to have cloud saves and the downloader, but nothing else.

@Offic3rHotpants usually open source apps are more secure than their closed source counterparts, because more eyes looking at the code can find and close vulnerabilities. Smaller apps are more risky, but the developer base for an OSS client would be a bit too large for that to be a problem.

This. It would make development so much easier for GOG since that means the community can port the client themselves. Plus, if GOG worries about features they want to keep for themselves, all they need to use is a copyleft liscence like GPL to keep their competitors from stealing features. Also what Hmz27 said, you could have proton support built-in and better compete against steam.

Can't agree more. GOG Galaxy 2.0 presents a very good idea but it has too much lacking to be a real alternative to any other launcher. If they are not willing to do it, community should at least be able to.

Why the hell are they refusing to open the source? <br /> I swear if this shit continues, i will write my own application and make a subscription service out of it and profit. <br /> Or just create a community Project to completely replace GOG Galaxy 2.0 and put the source on github, happily reviewing pull requests.

Please open source this client, I would love to know that my games launcher is secure. It's so scary how Steam has all of these unnecessary features baked into it like remote play. This could literally and probably is a RAT, but we have no way of telling since it's closed source. Please don't turn into a Steam!

Imagine how much faster all these features would be implemented with an open source client. There are some really basic and simple requests, like displaying download speeds that are less than 1 MB/s in KB/s. This is such a simple fix that most decent programmers could do. Open sourcing the client would let these small things be taken care of faster, and allow dedicated individuals to take care of the big fish.

Open-sourcing it would encourage developers to contribute to it and maybe write plugins. Therefore, I think it could more easily become the standard game launcher. <br /> <br /> And as said, making it GPLv3 would prevent your work to be taken to build a closed source launcher.

Release it under the GPLv3+ so that you are sure nobody profits from your work without releasing the changes back to you and the community. <br /> <br /> And I am pretty sure the community can get most games working on GNU/Linux flawlessly via DOSBox and Wine.

It already is (mostly) open source. Just beautify the Javascript and go ahead. At least for galaxy 1.0 GOG gave the goal. Something along the lines of "if you can work out how things work, you can go ahead".

I believe making the client-side open source would be a massive win for GOG in the market.

My dream launcher would be a mix of Galaxy + Lutris ( for the ease of installing non native games on Linux ). <br /> Releasing Galaxy open source ( Even with a license that restricts it's use in commercial projects if you want ) would make a lot of sense. <br /> Currently the client is not on Linux : you don't have the manpower to make a clean port ? Leave it to the community, bug-fixes will even benefit Windows + Mac versions. <br /> A merge of the functionality of Lutris and GoG would be even possible, just imagine, you just click play and it plays whether you're on Win, mac or Linux.

You are saying GOG galaxy client respects our privacy. But how can we really know you don't lie ? The problem is, today, you can't trust anyone about privacy, it's so easy to include some spyware or backdoor. Open source is a solution to this. Also, you would get the benefits from it : better security, help of the community, good rates, get the paranoid people to you, etc ... Open source is really important, consider this two times before staying closed source.

This would be so great, currently hesitant to link my accounts because of closed-source. Only benefits for you!

This would be great! DRM free and open source go hand in hand.

I don't see any reason not to. Aside from all open source benefits, it would mean GOG is leading the market in an ethical manner, and is contributing to a more ethical digital world. Coupled with a naturally arising Linux support even without much effort from the team's part, you would have total support from the growing Linux community. <br /> <br /> Yes, I made an account just for this, and I hope I'll get to use it more should a Linux-available, open source client come along.

I think a lot of people are being misled by the open source plugin module. This is incredibly disappointing because a fully open source client would come with many benefits. Tons of positive PR, allow peer review and security auditing which is now a concern given the connections to other services and it'd also allow the community to develop and maintain a Linux client if they're not willing to do it themselves. Such a missed opportunity.
