I just downloaded Tux Racer, and it's a great game.  However, I find the listed system requirements way too liberal.  I have a K5/75 box at my house with 32 megs of RAM and an 16MB nVidia Vanta graphics card (it's hardware-accelerated; this helps a lot, but it requires a kernel module), and I find Tux Racer to be playable, if not smooth.  I get framerates ~5 FPS with the default settings, and with minor quality sacrifice, I can get it up to 6 or 7.  I think the authors should lower the listed system requirements to encourage more people with low-end boxes to play; just my 2 cents. 8-) -- Colin
