Good Old Games Becomes GOG.com

GOG.com announces they are dropping the Good Old Games designation for their digital distribution service to better reflect their plans to offer more recent titles on their DRM-free marketplace. Here's a bit on what this means:

Don’t worry, no matter how new we’re getting, GOG.com will always stick to our three core values: No DRM, Fair Pricing, and Love for our GOG-ers. Newer means simply newer games, whether they’re big, recognized names, indie games, day-one releases, or pre-orders. Pre-order for Legend of Grimrock for only $11.99 today, or pick up Trine and The Whispered World right now; Spacechem, Machinarium, and Darwinia are coming soon. We have more than 20 great indie and newer games signed on GOG.com that will be showing up in the next few months.. These games lead the way on our the transition from Good Old Games to simply GOG.com. It doesn’t matter what G, O, and G stand for, Gee Oh Gee dot com stands for high-quality, DRM-free gaming, each week with bigger and newer games.

I was annoyed at GoG for the crappy state Thief 2 was released in (why weren't the config tweaks, widescreen upgrade, and other required addons pre-installed?), but I still am very fond of them. This is a great movefor them. I for one am hoping for a whole lot more new games to he released DRM-free.
Have they done this for any other games on their service? Baldur's Gate II from GOG didn't have a widely-used widescreen fix, either...

And now that I think of it, if you get Ultimate DOOM on Steam, you play the DOSBox copy rather than one of the excellent source ports that have been out for like a decade.

I bought the QuackeCon pack a while ago to get all the Doom content plus the Quakes. Doesn't stop me from using the Doom wad files with ZDaemon and Doomsday
