Yeah, ET:QW is great. I have my own server in our companies data centre 
running ET:QW. Originally I had been planning to run UT3 on it, but I am 
not hosting a server for a game I can not play myself (due to there 
being no UT3 linux client - I will not buy or install a copy Windows 
just to play a game). I pre-ordered my copy of UT3 in anticipation of 
UT3 for Linux, so am disappointed it has not yet surfaced, but ET:QW has 
nicely filled the void in the mean time. And on the linux games front I 
still have Penumbra: Black Plague (http://www.penumbrablackplague.com/) 
to look forward too! Its predecessor Penumbra: Overture is really great 
(http://penumbra-overture.com/) and the games are actually not expensive 
at all, which is cool. I think gradually the linux market for games is 
increasing :)
