    So.. is it going to be just the Dosbox stuff or will they attempt wine wrappers?
    What about library linking? I assume it's going to be static?

    THE Witcher 3?

    Pls. Pls. Pls.

    (Not only would be AAA title but also from Poland )

    Also Valve seam to have little to no influence over older titles. If GOG.com can push for classics (and same prices...) ....... Tasty.

    PS Do GOG.com have analog to steamplay?

    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!".

    As long as they offer Linux version of games that have a linux version, or use an emulator that's available on Linux (dosbox, I don't know if they use others) it's gold for me.

    either they lied because they didn't care to try or then had no clue how hard it would be.

    I find it nice that they realized they were wrong, and changed their minds. I hope they won’t release debian packages, though, that would be annoying.

    You'll have to explain what this "steamplay" is...

    Yes, typical excuse used by companies who do not want their real reasons publically discussed.

    Ryan "Icculus" Gordon made it very clear in his presentation at the Valve conference that this so called "argument" has always been bull shit.
