I guess I need to see if my copy I snagged from out of an Electronics Boutique when I caught the opportunity to buy it still works- it was a pretty fun game, really. Had to convince the store that I knew what I was buying when I promptly grabbed the box and walked it to the register.
An update on things... NDA's HAVE been signed on the Europa Universalis 2 engine (Yes...) and there's a new entrant on the looking into list- go over to the first post on the thread if you're curious as to what just got added...
Weither or not it needs a cleanup, that's a different issue.
The big deal there isn't that it needs cleanup (The URLs are to older versions of the source port...the Freespace Source Code Project has the latest and greatest...)- it's trying to get an officially supported for Linux version with Interplay's blessings. You can get Freespace/Freespace2 itself from Good Old Games for download- and play it with the FS-SCP installer. But that's not QUITE the same as downloading an official installer, now is it?
Whats all that crap about religious intolerance in the caster blog??

Some people think that anyone that's not with them is a full-on bigot and has to be suppressed for the good of all (Never mind that the people asking for that sort of thing are guilty of the very thing they accuse their targets thereof...)- that they're going to take every penny and put it to putting down other people's rights.
