Energize Education Tip of the Day!

So you think that open source software isn’t exciting or thrilling? Check out Super Tux Kart. This is an open source first-person POV racing game. Tux, Wilbur and the other open source mascots are racing cars against each other and time in such exotic locations as Scotland, the Amazon Rain Forest and Outer Space. Better still, they can pick up items to help them along the way, either as weapons or boosts, such as bombs, speed boosts and anchors (to hang on opponents’ cars). Check out the screenshot below and this video.
