It's not an "appstore" unless by "store" you mean "repository" instead of "shop" - F-Droid is more accurately a repository client, that ships with the F-Droid FLOSS Repository pre-configured.

You can run your OWN repository; some people use this to back up purchased .APKs, as F-Droid supports versioning.

Short line, less than 15 minutes and only one dude holding a sign outside my polling place. Voted around 20:00, I guess.

Was able to laugh and happily ignore the last 5 days of attack ads, mailings, people begging on social media to vote one way or the was nice. Very nice. I'd do it again.

Things that worked for me, on either Ubuntu 10.10 or Debian 6.0.5. I have an R300 card, and use the free drivers.

Worked: World of Goo, Lugaru HD, Aquaria (both builds), Osmos (music stutters), Revenge of the Titans, Cortex Command, Frozen Synapse, VVVVVV, Steel Storm, Dungeons of Dredmor (after much patching!), Gish (both builds), Penumbra: Overture, Machinarium (wrapped Flash), SpaceChem (.NET), Trauma (wrapped Flash), Hammerfight (really shitty with a trackball; had to use bluetooth mouse), Night Sky, And Yet It Moves, Frozen Synapse, Defcon, Jamestown, Voxatron, Atom Zombie Smasher (.NET), Binding of Isaac (wrapped Flash), Blocks That Matter, Chocolate Castle, Zen Puzzle Gardens, Jasper's Journeys.

Didn't work well: Braid, Darwinia, Crayon Physics Deluxe (bad fonts on Ubuntu, didn't try Debian)

Never tried: Uplink, Multiwinia

Never could run: Samorost 2, Trine, Shadowgrounds, Shadowgrounds Survivor, Jack Claw, Crayon Physics Deluxe, Cogs, CaveStory+, Shank, Super Meat Boy (buggy as sin)

I guess I got my money's worth?

No problem is so large it can't be fit in somewhere.
