Stuff we've discussed on IRC.

An OpenGL-based Elite clone. Very nicely done.
It feels most like the Archimedes Elite to play, but they've introduced some of the less annoying features from Frontier too.
They've also introduced something that makes docking almost too easy: each space station has a marker buoy a couple of kilometers outside its entrance.
It isn't often the phrase "I should install Linux so I can play games" comes to mind.
(sadly, at the momement I have no Linux machines with decent 3D graphics support)
It doesn't need to be especially decent; I'm running it on a Radeon 9200.
(Although it does seem to want to do things with planets that my card doesn't quite understand...)
