You can spend $400 on a console and $400 on a cheap PC, or you can spend $800 to build your own and have the best of both worlds.

I was gonna post this. Im glad to see GOG join Steam, Desura, and the Humble Bundle with Linux support.

Considering most of those classics run on DOSBox to begin with this is a no brainer. Although technically, it's just Ubuntu/Mint based system support atm from reading the news item.

I'm sure it'll also work on other distros just like Steam does, even though it only "officially" supports Ubuntu.

Just like most of the games would work on Linux based systems before they announced this. That's not the point I was making. There's a difference between "works" and "supported".
