OK, so I introduced my wife to Frozen Bubble as a way to encourage her to boot into the Ubuntu partition occasionally. For a while she was so hooked on the game that I started accusing her of acting like Penny on the Big Bang Theory episode ("The Barbarian Sublimation") where Penny gets addicted to gaming and assumes the on-line persona of "Princess Penelope".

Currently my favorite Linux game is Maelstrom, but I agree that Frozen Bubble is a great game, and hard to quit once you start moving through the levels.

I still miss the Spacewar game that we played on the SDS Sigma Seven at the MSU Cyclotron Lab!

As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.
