"This past week I did something unthinkable. I
purchased a Windows application. It was a game called Quake 3
Arena. Don't worry, I haven't gone over to the dark side. I haven't
gone back to dual-booting, either. I just needed to have a valid
retail version (and the CD key that accompanies it) of Quake 3
Arena to install and use my Linux version of Q3A. I downloaded the
latest point release of Q3A from the id Software ftp site. (See the
resources below for the URL.)
Serious gaming is out of character for me. Tux Racer is my idea
of a walk on the wild side. Violent multiplayer Internet play of
Q3A was a brand new experience. I blame the whole thing on
associating with the wrong crowd. People like [Cadet], ascii,
Debiot and The_Dome. They lured me astray with all their talk of
multiplayer gaming on Linux. Peer pressure of the very worst sort.
You can see that the deck was stacked against me. Nurture ran
rampant over nature. I had no choice."
