This team is dedicated to the advancement Free Software and the promotion of Ubuntu and FOSS games for that. If you believe that FOSS games have no future, or, as some of our members may agree with, that proprietary software titles running natively on Ubuntu are needed, that is fine, but simply outside the scope of this team. There is not a great need for an organized effort to promote proprietary gaming on Ubuntu as such pressure on software vendors is occuring naturally and Wine development is going strong to pick up the slack.

Why FOSS?

This team is dedicated to the advancement Free Software and the promotion of Ubuntu and FOSS games for that. If you believe that FOSS games have no future, or, as some of our members may agree with, that proprietary software titles running natively on Ubuntu are needed, that is fine, but simply outside the scope of this team. There is not a great need for an organized effort to promote proprietary gaming on Ubuntu as such pressure on software vendors is occuring naturally and Wine development is going strong to pick up the slack.
