Ur Quan Masters would be my choice, but it's not on the poll.

Nice things around there but I don't know what happened between you and the Urban Terror developers Jeremy This is another year without one of the finest OpenSource games listed here.
By the way check out QuantZ for Linux, sorry for the propaganda, but it is the first game I did want to buy in a long time.

Is World of Goo a candidate?

I guess you have to pay for the full version... very professional. Nice to have in the Linux world. My kids enjoy it.

Savage

Add this game "Savage" on poll.
What is Savage?
Savage is a Real Time Strategy Shooter (RTSS) that takes place on Earth millions of years from now, well after the fall of all known civilization. Working in a non-persistent online environment, Savage will combine all of the action that gamers expect from a first-person shooter and all of the challenge that real-time strategy fans demand.
See some screenshots

The Urban Terror site seems to disagree with you about it being Open Source, which makes it ineligible for this category:

Quote:
This means the game code (the .qvm's in zpak000.pk3) are closed source and can only be distributed electronically over the internet, not on cd or dvd. The non-code data files of Urban Terror (zpak000-assets.pk3) can go on any medium however. The full license texts come with the installer, they outweigh the information provided here.
If this is old or outdated data and Urban Terror is now Open Source, please include a link.

Would it be possible to add Neverball to this list? I find it to be a nice, simple, well-polished FOSS game.
