Some really cool non-commercial games too.. in fact.. all of the VERY FIRST 
multi-player (graphical) Internet games in existence were only on UN*X/X11 
(way back before the original wolfenstien was even around doing it's hokey 
serial port and LAN/IPX only game play on Win3.1!) 
Some of these oldy-goldy time wasters were:
	Netrek:	http://www.netrek.org/ http://www.netrek.org/about/2005-newbie.html
	xpilot:		http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XPilot
	xtanks:		http://documentation.wikia.com/wiki/Xtank/Introduction

and my all time favorite (more current)...
	Scorched3D:	http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scorched_3D

p.s. An interesting read on the history of online games:
