Getting Free Games on the Web

The games on the Move CD barely scratch the surface of the free games available on Linux. The free software community has created a number of great games that can provide many hours of entertainment. However, there’s no getting around the fact that they do not approach the almost lifelike look of today’s top commercial games.

One of the best places to get free Linux games is http://freshmeat.net, an online database of free open source software. And it is not limited to just games; in fact, it’s an invaluable resource any time you are looking for an open source program to fulfill a specific need. From the Freshmeat homepage, click the Browse link to see a selection of categories, and then click Games/Entertainment to see the games available for download. Many of these games run on Windows as well, so you can try them out before you switch to Linux.
