Back in the days , when I had a real physical Linux box (I Use vpc/vmware these days), I've downloaded and compiled one of the first non-ascii-like Linux games.
The game was called Tux Racer and it was basically a downhill ski ride of the Linux penguin figure. Today , while I was walking around the mall with my little daughter , we've went into the games arcade , and there by the side stood a real life tux racers games box.
There is much that's going right now on where are all of the open source millionaires, I don't know if they made millions from this arcade machine, but it was nice seeing something actually materializing from a sourceforge.com project into a real life business object.
