Are other titles available?
Yes there are. Oil Rush, for example. You can browse the Linux only games by going to the game browsing page and clicking the Tux in the upper right hand corner. The Humble Indie Bundle was popular and came with Desura keys, so a lot of people can test using Desura without having to buy a game straight out from them.
Are other titles available? Does this mean EA is going to start doing Linux ports through this?
I *highly* doubt EA will ever start doing Linux ports and if they did, they'd find a way to bring Origin to Linux to do it. But Desura acts as a game distribute service that goes across Windows, Linux and soon to be OSX that developers can utilize when creating cross platform games. I welcome Desura and will be using it for future game transactions since Steam never decided to make a Linux port.
One other point to clarify is from this weekend’s press conference. While the passwords that were stored were not “encrypted,” they were transformed using a cryptographic hash function. There is a difference between these two types of security measures which is why we said the passwords had not been encrypted. But I want to be very clear that the passwords were not stored in our database in cleartext form. For a description of the difference between encryption and hashing, follow this link.
The fact that the server got overloaded is a testament to how much us KDE4 users hate KDE4 (and how much the KDE developers apparently hate us).
Not all of us hate KDE4, many of us love it so don't walk around like everyone hates it. Plus the Qt+KDE communities are tightly knitted. If you think that Trinity will still be "KDE 3.5" once it's ported to Qt4, you're very wrong. It will be KDE4 with less functionality.
