"after much deliberation," they will begin to support Linux with game testing already underway.
First up is Ubuntu and Mint being supported, and they're "testing games on a variety of configurations" with 100 Linux games ready by this fall. They can't name games yet.
It's still in its infancy and so even the GOG.com teams aren't entirely sure what titles will make it into the fall launch. Some will be titles already built for Linux.
