Although initially did not announce a date specific, yes it became known that Ubuntu and Mint distros would be that would receive the support initially, and others obtained in the course of the year.
It was believed that GOG would throw support in Linux during September or October, but it is clear that they have done sooner than expected, and even before than they initially expected. The idea was to launch a total of 100 games, but they opted not to delay the project so much and why they have announced the launch with 50 titles. Obviously the other 50 are still underway and will be coming in a few months.
There are some games that are making his debut on Linux since yesterday, Flatout, Sid Meier completo Colonization, Pirates! Gold Plus and Rise of the Triad, to name a few.
