GOG.com: We are Not Ready to Support Linux Officially Yet

Few days back, we reported that GOG.com might announce support for Linux platform in a livestream event on October 18th.

There are nearly 7000 votes on Linux support wishlist. Unfortunately it looks like Linux support is not coming in near future. GOG.com would love to do it but not yet. Below is the official response:

We've seen a lot more of you guys voting on this wish recently and I thought it was only fair for me to update you. Linux is a great platform, and we love how much passion you guys are showing for it here on our wishlist. We definitely know that it's one of the top things our community wants from us, but it's also really difficult to bring the GOG.com level of support and ease-of-use to the wide variety of distros that are commonly used by Linux users. If we're able to bring GOG.com games to Linux--and we're constantly evaluating ways that we can do this--we want to make sure that we're doing it the GOG.com way: simple, easy, and it "just works." I'm not telling you guys to give up hope--we know how much you want this--but what I am saying is that this is harder to support than it might seem initially, and we're not ready to move to support Linux officially just yet.

If you haven't voted yet, do it now. If you have a suggestion for GOG.com, don't forget to leave it in comments section.
