The BadVista campaign is an advocate for the freedom of computer users, opposing adoption of Microsoft Windows Vista and promoting free (as in freedom) software alternatives.
DefectiveByDesign.org is a broad-based anti-DRM campaign that is targeting Big Media, unhelpful manufacturers and DRM distributors. The campaign aims to make all manufacturers wary about bringing their DRM-enabled products to market. DRM products have features built-in that restrict what jobs they can do. These products have been intentionally crippled from the users’ perspective, and are therefore “defective by design”. This campaign will identify these defective products, and target them for elimination. Our aim is the abolition of DRM as a social practice.
I was discussing the Games that Empower project with some
hardcore gamers and they said something like “but there aren’t any real
games on Linux” so I just wanted to share some info about some of the
other games that you can play. Some of them you have to pay for and some
don’t make the source code available. Here’s some of the well known
ones that we can play together.
I put together a project called Games that empower.
Its a collection of Free, Libre and Open source games and a simple way for people to download them.
There’s been a lot of hype about the value of game based learning in education lately so I hope this project is useful. Recently a few of the teachers I’ve met seem to focus on social justice and the issue of free as in gratis so perhaps this project can be helpful to people struggling financially as well. They can avoid spyware, adware, malware and violating copyright by using these games.
Feel free to spread it around, I know if I had more time for computer games I would enjoy stumbling across this project.
UPDATE: The list is so old now, I hope to update this project soon.

You can also play vs GNU Go. Its easy to learn but I’m still struglling to get my first cap. Reading Sensei’s Library improved the way I play so you may want to check it out. It reminds me of chess how you really have to concentrate and at times think ahead. Register at IGS Pandanet and take me on, my username is Chrismo.
