I actually paid for it, but you can get the CVS snapshot for free(see the download page), though it doesn't include the "Point2Play" utility which simplifies everything for you.

yes it "simplies" it. ROFL
Good game, Soldier of Fortune 2. Quake 3 works good. Quake 2. Uhm.... I believe counter strike is available on linux but you should just double check on that. I'd wait for the new counter strike cuz the old one sucks bidalls.
