Default Linux Gaming Revisited at Hexus!

For those of us interested in alternative OS's the crew at Hexus have revisited gaming with Linux!!!
Linux has proper 3D support - at Bloodline I was equipped with a GeForce 6800. Linux is 100% compatible with your £50 Pro Gamer mouse mat, ultra-high precision mouse, and £40 21” refurbished monitor. Linux runs Doom 3 and Half-Life 2. Linux has some decent gaming websites, and even its own forthcoming LAN party. So really, what's so strange about gaming with Linux?

After reading their interview with Cedaga and hearing about Microsoft's new registration policy; my Windows partition is getting closer to being fdisk'd....

I've read some reviews on the TVWonder, unfortunately it hails for ATi's olde days, killer hardware... crappy software. I picked up a Hauppage myself. That and it's has Linux support
