Free Open Source Apps and Games
Datamation has great list of free, fun open source apps and games. If you're looking for some software, check out this list.

It's broken down into the following categories:

Arcade Games
Board Games
Casual and Puzzle Games
Educational Games
First-Person Shooter Games
Game Collections
Music Games
Racing Games
Roleplaying and Adventure Games
Simulator Games
Strategy Games
Fun Non-Games

As we do every summer, we've pulled together our list of 101 of the "funnest" open source apps ever created. Of course, most of these are games, but there are also a few fun non-games at the end of the list.

This year, we've updated the list with quite a few new entries, as well as eliminating some of the older titles that are no longer being maintained.

Many commentators have noticed that open source and Linux are starting to attract more game developers. Hopefully, the trend will continue and we'll have even more open source games to consider for next year's list.

Altogether they've got 101 free open source apps and games listed. Most of it is games, but there are five non-games listed right at the end of the article.

I'm not too much of a gamer these days (beyond a bit of World of Warcraft). But I do like Extreme Tux Racer and SuperTuxKart. Both of those are a lot of fun, so check them out if you're looking for a couple of cool Linux games.

The point about Linux and open source attracting more game development is an important one, and one I'm very happy to see. It's been a long time coming, but when you have companies like Valve doing games for Linux, it just makes you feel good.
