Well, I managed to get on an have a few games....  it was an absolute 
kill-fest... for the other guys!  I had loaded the game onto my laptop 
running Ubuntu 11.04 (with default graphics drivers).  The graphics were 
very laggy, even at low resolutions, but I persisted and managed (with 
great skill) to get killed a record number of times.

I later transferred the game to my Linux Mint (LMDE) partition, on the 
same Laptop, and tried again.  LMDE has proprietary nVidia drivers 
loaded and it ran heaps better, even at higher res.  I got back on-line 
and played few games with my son after installing it on his PC (seeing 
as all the PLUGGERS had abandoned the game by then) and it was much more 
enjoyable....   Still got my bum kicked (by a 12yr old!)...  but it was fun.

I look forward to setting even greater records next time.
