    What year was that? I assume the beginning?
    Spring 92, Linus had done the version jump to 0.95.

    I imagine Valve can't legally do anything themselves, other than contact the original publishers and ask them to release it on linux. Which hopefully they are doing.

    Problem with ID's games is that it's with out punkbuster support.

    True! The developer of Incredipede mentioned on the Steam forums that he wanted to roll out his game on Steam for Linux some months ago. Apparently he changed his mind. He also mentioned that the Linux version would'nt have the same graphics, since he used Adobe Air for his game, which only runs with software rendering on Linux. Maybe that's the reason he finally canceled it?
    Anyway, he made his game available for free on Linux! -> http://www.incredipede.com/linux.html

    I'm experiencing the same issue.

    I have that somewhere in my closet. The Worms SNES cart, complete with box and manual :P

    Converting videos helps (inside the movies subdirectory there):

    Code:
    for file in *.mp4; do ffmpeg -i $file -codec:v libtheora -qscale:v 9 -codec:a libvorbis -qscale:a 5 ${file%%.*}.ogv; done
