Since your site is not involved in sales, it does not violate the spirit of the Guidelines and could be of potential use to linux users. Good luck with your project.

Nice site, but I couldn't help noticing this article:

$3400?! Are they serious? Good Luck with that.
I can build that and have around $1500 left over for games.

Good site.

This is the one I am simply passionate about:

http://www.linuxgamingworld.com/2006/12/x-plane#more-27

For anyone into flight they need to check this out. As said in your review, the scope of this thing is so far beyond "just" a flight sim. You can do anything from dogfight with friends online to actual realistic flight training. The online forum http://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?&act=idx offers any and all advice you would ever need and offers monthly online flyinns in exotic locals. For the graphics oriented people (like me) you can build aircraft (and boats, ground vehicles, static objects...) from the ground up or build your own airport. Modify an existing one. Build hangers, houses, cityscapes...it is astronomical! The full monty world scenery will cost you $70 American but it is well worth the price. It is not as graphically "polished" as MS Flight Sim X, but this one is completly open, you can modify anything and everything in it. And the developers welcome you to contribute to the project. See my thread on X-Plane in this section of this forum for more screenshots and other opinions. I cant brag enough on this one folks!
