But my reason was mostly to enlarge the Linux game market. I would assume
_some_ of the Indrema titles would have been shipped for any PC. 

I agree with you on all other points. Would have liked such a box though,
currently my most powerful machine is a Ppro 232 - and the g++ compile
times are driving me crazy.

It is strange to claim that video games should influence children. If for
example Pac-Man influenced children born in the 1980'ies, then today we
would have a lot of young people jumping around in dark rooms, eating pills
while listening to monotome music
