Not Generals, But For Gamers: Nexuiz

I just wanted to let everyone know about a little game that a friend told me about. It's called Nexuiz . Here's a breif description:
After many years of development, Nexuiz has been released to the public! Nexuiz is a fast-paced, chaotic, and intense multiplayer first person shooter, focused on providing basic, old style deathmatch. The 1.0 release weighs in at 161MB, and includes 17 maps, 28 playable characters, and 10 music tracks. It is cross-platform, and supports Windows and Linux (x86 and x86_64), with Mac support coming soon!

It's a lot like Unreal Tournament. If you enjoy first person shooters, you'll like this. You can get it here.

Side note: The music in the game is somewhat lacking. To change it, go into the data folder and rename the .pk3 file to .zip then open it with WinRar. Inside the sounds folder there is a folder for cd tracks. Just replace the track00x.ogg files with mp3's you've converted to ogg (You can use Audacity).
