Source. Hot damn, GabeN jam. Crytek last week, now GOG (popular digital retailer and sister company of CD Projekt RED who is the developer of The Witcher series and Cyberpunk 2077) this week?

It's about time, maybe my next OS will be Linux based, frankly Windows 8.1 is pretty solid one but go nothing special that I need except for DirectX support.

I know, but I don't really feel like I've missed out on a whole lot of games to be honest. I may reinstall win 7 on my spare HDD for watch dogs whenever that comes out though.

Sure, if you don't game that much on the PC then a free OS is way better than paying for one that costs 70-100$

I game a fairly decent amount, mostly indy and classic games, with a "AAA" game here and there. But yeah, If I can get most of the games I want to play on a free OS, it makes more sense than paying big bucks for one.

I game at least 30 or more hours a week and the games I do that with are already on Linux. It helps when the most popular titles on Steam are for Linux as well. I am sure I am missing out on a game here and there, but it doesn't bother me. I just spend more time playing other games.

And by extension, Cyberpunk 2077. Most splendid this is.
