    Does the Gog client work with Linux yet?
    Do the deb binaries work on Ubuntu?

    Yep.
    Should be, since Ubuntu 14.04 is one of the targeted systems.

    Gog client, are you kidding? The very reason I buy on gog is because there is no such nonsense.
    And yes they should work fine on Ubuntu (exceptions of course possibly)

    Actually they are gonna have a client in the future (http://www.gog.com/galaxy), but it's only as to offer steam like feature for the user, you will still be able to go client-less.

    Well, if you say "client" I assume some app you need to use for the games, not some optional "downloader" (most browsers can resume croken dl just fine so I dont see a big need for that kinda stuff).
    And apparently you already knew the answer.

    So maybe thats a lacking convienience factor for some, but I dont see clicking links as big hassle
