Question What really is LinuxGamer?


I know that its a Linux Ditro. They say its for gaming and has some game which come along with the copy. Can anyone give me a clear idea about it?

So what you are really asking is...

Could somebody please type the subject of my post into google, and search it for me, because I:
A) am too lazy to do so myself
B) would rather wait around for somebody to reply on a forum than get an immediate answer by googling it yourself

Pay particular attention to the text in the light blue coloured box...

fukawi1 has a point, you could have just used a search engine and got stuff like this-

As linux is open source and any packages included in it are also open source and free. So how come the games in linuxgamers are also free. As per i know, gaming industry needs profit, so how can it survive without profit.

The same way all open source projects do.
People volunteer their time.

(Since my original response to you was considered rude, this time i saved you the trouble of using google, and just posted you some links)

I asked it because i am surfing internet thru my cell phone and it happens most of the time that you don't get a clear answer. And i can't get tabbed surfing on my cell, so its hard to manage keeping up with both the forum and google. Anyway thanks for the effort to post the links.
