Looks like GOG Galaxy won't come to Linux any time soon, as it's "not a priority"

These are the goals that I see we have. Might be missing a point or two and surely everyone has different priorities.

- getting dev to develop native games (and other software as discord, twitch, etc...) for linux
- DRM free games
- binding/independence to a (shop) infarstructure (like steam, origin, paradox, battle.net etc.)
- and we have different players in the market supporting one but not the other and users want this or that

Ketil...
How do you ensure your paying customers have access for ever, also after the store die, but prevent access from people who didn't buy the game?
...

Well, ensuring ist difficult, but when the developer closes down he usually sells the software to someone else, that guy could provide the services, if no one takes over the games could become open source or at least free to use.

Maybe paradox would build an marketplace open for other developers. I think you can break these things down to some apis that can be used by any developer to link to their customers. Decentralised as the internet used to be and should be.
Who needs centralized services that break sooner or later (thinking in decades not years). What will be left of steam, battle.net or origin in 10 to 20 years. Solutions like email, nfs, etc are here to stay, everything closed ist not.

Not a big surprise, they belong to CD Project Red and they tricked us on Witcher III before.

Paradox are now doing their own game client for downloads, cloud saves, statistics and so on

Would be great if they build it on open protocols, api's and server software, so other companies could join and we have something like a open framework...

The Witcher 3 didn't come to Linux likely as a result of the user-backlash from The Witcher 2

I think there is a hype around many games, people who've been hyped about the product probably react stronger to the feeling of being let down.

But I still think that, if true, the reaction of CDR is as childish as insulting people.

I wonder, do you know a word for racism among os's/software? We surely need one when the first robots turn up. We don't want to miss a feature from humanity, do we?
