A category for Linux games to easily find games for us using that platform. For starters games that have native Linux versions, and later maybe the ones that can be run using wine/dosbox

@jorlin: Apparently they're already bundling tested versions of Wine with some of their Mac offerings in much the same way they do with DOSBox.

ScummVM and DOSBox hardly have any regression bugs, whilw Wine has too many regression bugs to keep track of. As it is, only ScummVM/ DOSBox based games would qualify for such a label. That is unless GOG would start to support Wine as a platform, which I deem highly unlikely.

For games that run under Dosbox, what Gog creates is basically an installer that wraps the game in dosbox. Being a desktop Linux user, I wish I were able to download the game zip, and not dosbox or gog installer.

Both DOSbox and ScummVM have linux clients. Considering that many of the games here on <a class="light_un" href="http://GOG.com" target="_blank">GOG.com</a> use these emulators to run, adding a download option for the linux clients should not be too hard. Not all Linux users are powerusers that are comfortable using Wine.

While I see what you are getting at, I believe that this would not benefit the community. Especially because wineHQ has an extensive list of games that work with wine, so you could use that, right? Adding to that, just because it did work for somebody, does not mean it will work for somebody else as well, especially under the several different linux distributions. I'd love to have that as well, but I think <a class="light_un" href="http://gog.com" target="_blank">gog.com</a> would be the wrong place.
