    Linux demo, what games?

    Next april we have an event: FLISOL. It is the Latinoamerican Festival of Free Software Installation. Im planning to move my PC there to show Linux perfomance with games and I would like to hear some recommendations about what games should I show. I was thinking about some free ones and also a couple of commercial demos. What free game do you think looks better (better models, use of shaders, etc)? What commercial demos do you recommend?
    My hardware is Radeon HD2600 xt, Celeron 2.8 Ghz and 750 Mb of RAM (Im expecting a donation of 2Gb DDR2 and a Core Duo CPU, but cant be sure if I will have them for april)

    Also I don't know what kind of display you plan on showing this off on. If you plan on using displaying on some large LCD, I'd go for a game like Nexuiz, its generally a darkly themed game, so bloom and lighting effects will be more dramatic. If instead you're looking at a projector or some other large format display where you may not have as much contrast, I'd go with a Warsow demo.
    Well, Im planning to use my old 17" CRT. It is old technology, but I dont have the $300 for a replacement.
    Seems Im pretty tight with specs, Ill have to make some tests and see what performs/looks the best.

    The shadowgrounds games could be a good choice too, when they are actually released.

    Commercial demos you'd want to demo, Doom 3 (which is pretty much an older Quake 4 release) as well as Penumbra games. Those games look fairly impressive too.

    I think Sauerbraten ( www.sauerbraten.org ) is also quite nice to show. Exspecially with the current SVN version which includes rag-doll physics and a much nicer looking playermodel.

    You could also go for Yo Frankie! (formerly the Apricot project). It's free and open source and you can get it at the official web site.

    Yo Frankie is buggy as heck, not really a great choice to show off. Also with his current system uningine demo's would crawl unless running at very low resolutions (I'd also say the demo graphics wise is more akin to the original Farcry then Crysis.).
