Life without Windows or OS X

GNU/Linux is quite possibly the most important free software achievement since the original Space War, or, more recently, Emacs. It has developed into an operating system for business, education, and personal productivity. GNU/Linux is no longer only for UNIX wizards who sit for hours in front of a glowing console. Are you thinking about switching to Linux and want to learn how to use it? Have you been using GNU/Linux for some time and want to learn even more? This is the place for you.

Nexuiz 1.5: Its Free

Nexuiz is free software, so anyone can download, modify, and share it as they see fit. Nexuiz has been in development for three and a half years by a team of amateur developers lead by Lee Vermeulen. It is a 3D deathmatch game made entirely over the Internet. The purpose of the game is to bring deathmatch back to the basics, with perfect weapon balancing and fast paced action, keeping itself away from the current trend of realistic shooters.”

This game is FREE.... Nexuiz is no replacement for a well-made proprietary game. Though Nexuiz is not intended to be an eye-candy game, it features many effects such as Coronas, reflected glow, Realtime Time and Dynamic Lights, with OpenGL 2.0, and gore. It uses DarkPlaces, an improved Quake engine. Again this game is FREE.....Nexuiz 1.5 focuses quick, deadly battles and balanced weaponry. As of the current release there are 9 weapons and 24 official maps, as well as 15 player models, with an average of 2 skins each. Cool thing is with the primitive graphics and sound you can run this game well on older hardware You don't need a high powered machine to play Nexuiz, and the detail levels are adjustable in case you have a really-really old machine.

I will say that online play wasn't too bad, but as far as I can see, Nexuiz only has one game type and thats deathmatch against only network players or bots. And yes, this game is entirely over the Internet. I want to see that part changed.
So again,playing Nexuiz will give you a Quake 3 "like" (I liked Quake3 better) experience in terms of gameplay, graphics, and sound. If you're still playing Quake 3 Arena, you may like Nexuiz.
