,----[ Quote ]
| Being an avid Linux user I hear lots of people complain that there are no 
| good games for our operating system, so I have put together a top 10 list of 
| the best FPS games in the spirit of proving them wrong. Most of these 
| wonderful games are even free, so without further delay…   


Gaming on my Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| For most people, Linux is a geeky machine that is only used for servers and 
| for research. They don’t think of it as a gaming platform because most games 
| almost always come as Windows and Mac only version. The truth is, there are 
| actually lots of games available for Linux. I’m not talking Linux-wine-games 
| but those games that run natively on the platform.

| Blair Mathis is back to introduce fifty of the most popular applications on 
| this OS   



Linux games - Lots of great choices

,----[ Quote ]
| As you can see, the Linux user has a plenty of choice when it comes to
| enjoying computer games. Compared to the Windows arsenal, the selection is
| still somewhat thin, but it's getting fatter (and better).
| I hope my review has opened your eyes, even if just a little. Oh, it is far
| from being all-inclusive. There are many other games and game types that I
| have no talked about, probably quite a few games that I have never heard of
| even. Then, there are other methods of obtaining games for Linux - like WINE,
| for example.
| We will talk about WINE separately. Likewise, we'll focus on several more
| good titles in the next article. As you may have noticed in one of the
| screenshots above, I've selected Freeciv for download, but have not reviewed
| it here. Freeciv and a few other names will have to wait for the sequel.

Play Linux Games From A Live DVD

,----[ Quote ]
| When it comes to gaming in Linux, one of the most frequently faced problems
| is the sourcing of the game code then compiling and installing them on your
| machine. While some games provide easy ways to install them or are found in
| the distro’s software repository, there are plenty of games that come in pure
| binary source code and require you to compile, make and install, all of which
| are like a nightmare to many Linux newbies.


MIB-Live Games 2008.1

,----[ Quote ]
| 2 DVDs based on Mandriva One 2008.1, each containing a lot of games:
| You can enjoy them directly from the DVD or, if you prefer, you can install
| it to your Hard-Disk.


Mandriva : MIB Live Games 2008.1 released

,----[ Quote ]
| Marcello Anni announced on Cooker ML the release of the MIB Live Games
| 2008.1. MIB ( Mandriva Italian Backports ) is a derived distribution of
| Mandriva Linux done by the Italian Mandriva community.


MIB Live Games

,----[ Quote ]
| MIB Live Games is a treasure trove for Linux gamers; at last count over 100
| games, 48 in arcade alone. As it is based on Mandriva 2008, the setup (and
| possible installation) are a breeze; to say that everything is included out
| of the box on this remaster of Mandriva 2008 ‘One’ would be an understatement
| indeed.    
| [...]
| For those in Asia, using the original Mandriva 2008 ‘One’ Asia edition is
| preferable as this remaster only offers major European languages at the
| starting configuration screen, though again they are not that difficult to
| add once the system is installed.  



Games Live DVD

,----[ Quote ]
| Fedora Games spin is a custom variant of Fedora targeted at Linux gamers.
| This is to demonstrate the gaming potential of Fedora without altering user's
| existing configuration. The Live DVD also allows installation to hard disk or
| USB flash.  


Open Source Gaming Review: Linux Gamers Live DVD 0.9.2

,----[ Quote ]
| Overall I like this live dvd of popular free Linux games and I wish the
| absolute best to the developers of the Linux-Gamers.net Live DVD and I want
| to encourage them to continue their work. It?s very, very much appreciated.
| While it?s still got some growing to do, and some bugs to iron out, it really
| has been a very enjoyable distribution to experiment with. I especially like
| the idea that I can take it with me anywhere I go and play some of my
| favorite Linux games, even if the system I?m playing it on doesn?t have
| Linux.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
