I am not a big fan of desktop gaming (I prefer PS3) and especially card games but it is nice to see that there are more applications being developed for Linux as we saw XnRetro, an app to apply Instagram like effect in Linux. Small apps like these mmakethe Linux desktop experience better, isn’t it?
