    On my system. I have both Swell-Foop and Same Game, both installed using The Software Center. See the screen shot.

    As soon as I installed Swell-Foop it automatically removed same-gnome?!

    I couldn't find same-gnome on USC. Anyway, same-gnome looks better. More professional. Swell-Foop looks childish , of course that's what apparently its designed for.

    Edit: wait a minute. You same-gnome is different than mine. I have the round balls.

    Swell Foop and Same Gnome are the same game. Swell Foop is the updated version which had a name change (Gnometris changed to Quadrapassel btw). They are just different revisions of the same game thus they conflict with each other (as does Totem 2.28 and 2.30...).

    The reason for the name changes is that Gnome programs shouldn' use "Gnome" in their names (it's Nautilus and not "GnomeExplorer", it is Totem and not "XineGnome") to get some coherence within the Gnome stack.

    Firefox! Probably not the king of some strange benchmark but still the king of the hill. Even with a bookmarks-sidebar
