    A Linux game store is better than none. Hopefully as time goes on they accumulate a larger library of games.
    Totally agree with this.

      Agreed. Honestly Phoronix seems to be getting more and more like a tabloid - what's next, phone hacking?

        Actually, depending on your definition of hacking, yes.

          Glad to see that everyone was thinking the same thing as me. BEEP looks nice and possibly fun (for a 12 year old at least.) I'm more into tower defense these days though... (No, not Oilrush... Help... I don't want to read anything more about it, ever!)

            ...Assuming that Gameolith doesn't magically pick-up the exclusive rights to some premiere titles or some very innovative features, you're best off just waiting for the Linux client releases of Desura and Steam...

            Can not disagree more!
            Why would I ever install a shitty binary software on my system just to buy and manage game licenses when we have the whole world wide web and a good web browser that can do absolutely the same work in a safer, faster and simpler way.

            Really, when I first heard of Desura I thought they where going to do a web store just like that. A pity they where too short sighted for that. The whole Steam way of doing it is there only to empower DRM. It's an evil model.

            I'm just saying...

              Or, it makes it 10000x easier to manage and update your games.

                Not really a good start though: http://ompldr.org/vOWd6MQ/gameolith.png
                As I am typing this, it's overdue by almost 30 minutes.

                      That's the carrot. Now open your eyes and see the stick.

                        The stick being... what? Having to use the program to update the games? Woo? I already wanted to do that!

                          It prevents us from doing what exactly? Concidering the sales at under $5 USD on Steam and the fact I can redownload my games whenever and wherever i like?

                          I've never paid launch price for any game outside of a handful of sequels that I know are going to be great, like the Metal Gear Solid series.

                            No use for this shit on my Ubuntu box. It goes way easier with just a repository and an apt:// url.

                            The same system can be implemented on Mac and Windows with ease.

                            I really don't know why the Ubuntu Software Centre itself isn't a webstore with local cache (webapp).

                              3) Whaa?
                              4) Lots of people don't.

                                1)Desura doesn't have DRM
                                2) no
                                3) woo?
                                4)Then don't use Desura, the rest of us will be quite content for trading convenience for nothing.
