Oh, snake, tetris, and matrix are all also available inside of Vim with some vim-script plugins if you are really daring. Personally, I think I will stick to the containerized versions mentioned earlier in this series.

Big banners. Possibly useful for authorized use messages but provided here to share your choice of holiday greetings. Happy Gnu Year!

As much fun as this can be as a toy, programs like espeak are essential to helping those with challenges communicate with the world. Screen readers share the world wide web with those that cannot see, voice boxes allow brilliant minds like Stephen Hawking to share their ideas.
Yet, there is more to accessible code than just the tools and utilities. How a web site is deigned in terms of colors, font types and sizes, and alternate tags for images is also important if you want to share your message with everyone. Investment in Open Source tools and User Interfaces (UI) that improve the openness and accessibility for all is greatly needed.

PS As an extra bonus. opensource.com also features an article today to Set the holiday mood with your Raspberry Pi

This article includes viewing Star Wars (previously commented on in this discussion) and a weather app that I like better than the IRC bot I have been using. Also some really nifty dedicated clients for reading discussion boards from the comfort of the command line.
