Are Linux apps and games worth paying for?

,----[ Quote ]
| The Linux operating system is free; you can download it without paying any
| licensing fees. You can use it in the home, you can run a business on it,
| even a data centre. You can embed it within tiny custom hardware. Despite
| this, Linux hasn't become a household name. Paradoxically, it may be the
| perceived dearth of commercial applications which is a cause.

Linux Got Game: War§ow 0.42

,----[ Quote ]
| War§ow, though still considered as a beta software is really well-crafted
| that I would highly recommend it to every FPS game fanatic or just about any
| gamer out there who wants to try something new. My only complain about Warsow
| is the lack of game server hosts, and based on my experience, it is sometimes
| difficult to connect to a particular server. I hope more people will be
| hosting Warsow because it really is a great FPS game. It is like a gem that
| I'm glad I've found. Also, I hope that a single player (offline) option will
| be available soon just in case my internet connection gets disconnected, or
| when I want to improve my skills by shooting against bots in easy mode
| (hehe).
