Games

We're initially going to be launching our Linux support on GOG.com with the full GOG.com treatment for Ubuntu and Mint. That means that right now, we're hammering away at testing games on a variety of configurations, training up our teams on Linux-speak, and generally getting geared up for a big kick-off in the fall with at least 100 Linux games ready for you to play. This is, of course, going to include games that we sell which already have Linux clients, but we'll also be bringing Linux gamers a variety of classics that are, for the first time, officially supported and maintained by a storefront like ours.

...and the Linux gaming news just keeps on coming. I remember how dismissive many people were back when Valve announced its Steam Machine initiative, stating Microsoft's hold would never ever be broken.

Makes them sound like Nokia and BlackBerry during the iPhone's launch, doesn't it?

This is after they said in september last year to me it would be too hard:

They claimed too many distro's made it difficult and they would only do it if they supported them all, now they come out saying "we support Ubuntu & Mint!".
