Raiden's Realm: Open Arena is a Quake 3 style First Person Shooter built on the GPL licensed Open Source Quake 3 engine. It's a stand alone game, so you don't need Quake 3 Arena to play it. Just like Quake 3 Arena, it's a full on, 3d FPS done in the traditional deathmatch style.
lxpages.com blog: This gap between Linux and Windows filesystem has been improved alot. There are many different ways of seeing your windows partition on Linux. In this article, I’m going to list the 20 different types of useful applications you can use.
USB ADSL Modem Speedtouch 330, the popular or even the default ADSL modem in some contries, is also one of the item that is difficult to make usable in Linux.

softwareinreview: OpenBSD 4.1 was released on May 1 with its usual mix of new hardware support and enhanced operating system features. OpenBSD releases generally represent a large collection of small changes plus a few new administration and networking tools. Beyond the standard "many little changes," the big news with 4.1 is a working native port of OpenOffice.org, the elimination of the Simtech StrongARM "cats" architecture from active development, and improved greylisting capabilities in the spamd spam filter.
Also: Using OpenBSD 4.1
