Linux Games/PenguinPlay IDEAS. (fwd)

I recieved this message this morning and thought I would post it here for
all to see.

It raises some good points and should create some interesting discussion.

I'am V. Interested...

Brainstorming Is good: I could think of a lot of things to say about
Linux+Games but here is just a few for now...

We (The Linux Game Development Group/Linux Gamers) need:
 + A _single_ name for "The Project(s) That we work on".
 + A Simple recognisable LOGO.
 + A Simple "catchy" phrase for Linux Games/Gaming.
 + A Mission Statement. (Strategy/Planning is vital IMHO).
 + A single website for Develpment
 + A single website for Publication/News/Discussion.

Of The Above, we already have http://sunsite.auc.dk/penguinplay/ for
Develpment (of PenguinPlay)

http://www.linuxgames.com/ Looks perfect as a standard place for
Publication and news

The www.linuxgames.com site also has what I think Is a v.good _simple_
They also have a resonable "catch phrase": Even Penguins like to have fun.

But I suggest that in the same way DirectX is synomonous with M$Windohh,
PenguinPlay should be synomonous with Linux.

PenguinPlay: Time to PenguinPlay!

LinuxGames: Quake+Linux+VoodooII = :-)

And so on..

What I think is still lacking is a common Mission Statement, however your
"Shoutout" to the Linux (Gamers) Community is an excellent beginning just
begging for attention. V.Good.

...I'll get back to you when I have more time.
