The lights are on
GOG.com – the classic games distribution service run by a subsidiary of Witcher developer CD Projekt RED – has announced it will support Linux titles.
The site says it plans to release its first batch of Linux titles this fall. Currently GOG.com promises "at least 100 Linux games" at that time. This includes Linux versions of titles already on GOG.com as well as some being offered digitally for the first time. Back in September 2013, GOG.com said that Linux support was unlikely for the site.

Our Take:With Valve bolstering Linux with its SteamOS initiative, it's good to see more options for those who choose to use the OS.
