Fedora Games Live CD is an open source distribution of Linux, a special edition of the award winning Fedora Linux operating system stuffed with a plethora of popular, addictive and fun games for all ages and genres.

Supports 32-bit and 64-bit machines, distributed as Live DVDs

This Fedora edition is distributed as two Live DVD ISO images of 4GB in size, which means that you will have to write them on either a single layer DVD disc or a USB flash drive of 4GB or higher capacity. It supports both 32-bit and 64-bit architectures.

Boot menu à la Fedora Linux

The boot prompt is identical with the one found on other Live CD editions of Fedora, allowing users to start the operating system with default settings, in safe graphics mode, run a memory (RAM) diagnostic test, as well as to boot an existing operating system that's installed on the first disk drive.

Lightewight Xfce desktop environment

The Fedora developers decided to use the Xfce desktop environment for this gaming edition of their amazing Linux distribution. It comprises of a top panel for accessing the main menu, launching apps and interacting with running programs, as well as dock located on the bottom edge of the screen.

Great collection of games

Among some of the include games, we can mention SuperTux, SuperTuxKart, Tux Paint, netPanzer, Maelstrom, Hedgewars, KoboDeluxe, GNU Go, Freecol, Freeciv, Enigma, Boswars, Bombardier, Blob Wars, and Alien blaster.

A great set of desktop-oriented apps

Default applications included the Claws Mail email client, Liferea feed reader, Midor web browser, Pidgin multi-protocol instant messenger, Transmission torrent downloader, Parole media player, AbiWord word processor, Thunar file manager, and Pragha music player.

Bottom line
