    Xbill is of course the greatest computer game ever made and it is a native Linux program.

    My goal is to someday slap Bill all the way to level 21. Lately I've been playing a lot of mines and KMahjongg though.

    I play Quake on Linux. I hear Quake was developed on Linux then ported to Windows. I use the Darkplaces engine.

    Your link begins to work then starts trying to load some crap from and falls flat on its face for me here.

    Oh well, I've enough Linux game to play here to keep me happy.
