A while ago, we've announced our plans to add Linux support as one of the features of our digital platform, with 100 games on the launch day sometime this fall. We've put much time and effort into this project and now we've found ourselves with over 50 titles, classic and new, prepared for distribution, site infrastructure ready, support team trained and standing by, and absolutely no reason to wait until October or November. We're still aiming to have at least 100 Linux games in the coming months, but we've decided not to delay the launch just for the sake of having a nice-looking number to show off to the press. It's not about them, after all, it's about you. So, one of the most popular site feature requests on our community wishlist is granted today: Linux support has officially arrived on!

Good on 'm.

For me, everything tears.

I think there's a bug somewhere, either in the driver or in my hardware, where the buffer swap that is supposed to occur in between screen redraws is occurring just after the redraw begins. It tears in every app, in the UI, when playing movies - everywhere.

I'm leaning towards driver, since it doesn't happen in Windows. It happens only in Linux (Well, I haven't tested FreeBSD yet), no matter what windowing environment, and it happens both in Ubuntu (multiple versions) and in Fedora 20.
