I have a list a mile long of console applications that deserve attention, I have a shortlist of graphical applications that probably should be noted as well, I have a series of links to pages and lists of applications, I have a wiki I try to maintain myself … and these days my methodology for finding interesting new programs is probably pretty dumb.
Here it is:
nettoe, a game so simple and obvious that it’s probably a CS homework assignment. Sure, it’ll play networked games too, which is a plus.
But that’s the way I’m finding new stuff these days — I let Debian packages pluck them out of the sky for me. Pretty lame, huh?
Sometimes they’re winners and sometimes they’re way off track, but I wouldn’t want you to think the stuff you read here wasn’t the result of rigorous testing and research.
