I would like to see a locally played version of One Must Fall: Battlegrounds. That looks like a cool game, but again, it must be played online.

That seems to be a booming business to make cool games like that and then charge us to play them...

It's pathetic business practices for me. I want a single player experience that rocks, as well as the capability of IM-ing my friend to challenge them and them hooking up with me and we go at it.

...and what happens one month when I get inundated with other stuff and can't come play for a couple months? Do I lose my progress and must start all over?

Dunno, don't play it. (if it is, why in hell would you need to buy a box set and then connect to the game servers via a paid account?)

I would like to see a kazaa lite k++ edition because it has everything kazaa does without all the adds. And iTunes it is just a good program.

is Kazaa Lite K++ Free?

Also they made a iTunes for Windows, I don't know why they would not make it for linux, since that is what I use to listen to my music..

Kazaa k++ edition is a free hacked version of kazaa but is very hard to find.It doesn't include any spyware or adds or anything and is 100 times better. It took me a long time on google to find it and update to a new version. Kazaa is now going after them because of copyright infringement. Kind of funny isn't it. Also I would think iTunes would be available for linux sense OSX is Unix as far as i know.

I abandoned my KAAZA account a long time ago. It was causing too many problems on my computer with all the viruses and everything.

I would not expect iTunes to be available for Linux. AFAIK, Apple hasn't made their other apps (such as QuickTime) for Linux. Porting Mac OSX apps to Linux is not (usually) trivial because although OSX is UNIX under the hood, it doesn't use the X Window System so the GUI would have to be rewritten to run on Linux (unless they make Aqua for Linux...not a likely proposition).
