Although I've been gaming for many years, I've never been big on
investing thousands in it.  I made a personal decision to play only
games which would run on Linux long ago, and I've been perfectly happy
with that.  Of course, I'm a little older now, with kids, a more senior
job, doing more travelling than ever, part-time role too (School
Governor) and so on, so I do nowhere near as much gaming as I once
would've done.

Even so, reaction quake is good enough for me :-)
