Wesnoth forever!

Three years ago, Battle for Wesnoth (along with applications like Firefox, VLC, OpenOffice and Thunderbird) showed me what can open source software achieve, so it was instrumental in my conversion to Linux. And it's still getting better and better!

Are mmorpg's not eligible for this category? Eternal Lands is open source and works great in linux.

BTW, maybe next year you could include game categories? First Person Shooter, Racing, Strategy, Cards, Arcade, stuff like that? It's a thought! Ric
