I have a circa 2008 laptop that was limping along on XP that I recently converted over to Ubuntu to try and extend it's shelf life until I can afford to buy a new one. I've been really happy with the operating system so far, as it can do 95% of what I need my laptop for. It has a good office suite, it has a good web browser, it can run VideoLAN (VLC) and it can run Audacity.
The one thing that I miss is that I had all of these old games pre-installed on my laptop that I either can't seem to get to run or I've lost the install CD for them. I'm curious as to what the community has to say on this. I'm looking for *old* games. I have a 1.3 gig processor and 2 gigs of RAM. Anybody got any good suggestions for really great, bang up games that can run on this kind of system? I'm looking specifically for either low cost games and/or games that can run native on Linux. I don't want to throw a lot of money on a game that I might not play for the long haul.
(For the record I have and *LOVE* "Battle for Wesnoth")
