"Digital DRM-free game distributor GOG.com is finally jumping on the Linux bandwagon.

Following the steps of Desura and Steam, GOG.com plans to offer Linux compatible games starting this year. Along with games already available for Linux, GOG.com will also be selling 'a variety of classics that are, for the first time, officially supported and maintained [by them].'

Most of the DOS titles already provided by GOG.com will probably pose no major technical challenge since GOG has been using DosBox on Windows and Mac OS X since the very beginning however, all the exclusive ports will probably be more difficult to provide."
