Howdy all,

Given the past success of FSM's free-software games events, I think this
presentation from this year's DebConf will be of interest:

    Debian Games: Learn more about free software games in Debian

    This talk is aimed for an audience who wants to learn more about
    games in Debian. How many are there, how can I find them, what kind
    of games are available and who maintains them? This presentation
    will give you a broad overview of the current state of Debian Games.
    It should give you some ideas what free software games are, who
    creates them, how they differ from commercial titles and why we
    should care about them.

    While the main focus of this talk will be on free software games, I
    will also discuss tools and programs that make it possible to play
    commercial games on Linux that were released for different
    platforms, some of them long forgotten.
