Credit to +CD PROJEKT RED​ and +GOG.com - DRM-Free Games​. I haven't played any Witcher game yet, but I preordered TW3 early partly because I want to support this company and its practices, and am looking forward to trying it.

I hope TW3 is made available for Linux, too.

I got this as a free gift with my latest British food order. (It was that or a packet of Haribo.) Target practice?

I am really liking the GOG and Galaxy approach. Next time I'm in Windows and have a bit of time for gaming stuff I'll be trying this out.
 
GOG Galaxy, the DRM-free online gaming platform, has just entered public beta! It offers one-click installation, automatic updates, library management, friends lists, chat, and so much more. 

Get it here: http://j.mp/GOGgalaxy

Check it out at the link above and give it a try yourself - but no pressure, it's fully optional!
