Sparky is tar­geted at com­puter users who want to re­place their ex­ist­ing, pro­pri­etary OS with one that’s open source. It comes in two vari­ants—the Ba­sic Edi­tion and the Home Edi­tion. The bun­dled DVD car­ries the Home Edi­tion, which has all the tools, codecs, plug­ins and driv­ers pre­in­stalled.

Games for MS Win­dows

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, so we thought of bundling a few of the most pop­u­lar open source games along with this month’s OSFY DVD. The DVD con­tains ex­e­cutable files of games like 0 A.D., The Bat­tle for Wes­noth, Me­gaGlest, etc, that you can en­joy on MS Win­dows.
