GOG.com has officially started rolling out their Linux support and the first batch of Linux-compatible, DRM-free games are available today.

Many Linux gamers have been after GOG.com's collection of old, classic game titles that are distributed DRM-free. Beginning today, Linux versions of supported games are available -- in both universal Linux binaries and Debian packages. GOG.com intends to ultimately have over 100 Linux games on their service, but this first batch includes 50 games, 23 of which are new to Linux. In the coming months GOG.com expects to cross the 100 game threshold.

Among the Linux-released titles today on GOG.com are FlatOut, Darklands, Realm of the Haunting, CLARC, Gods Will Be Watching, Teslagrad, etc.
