I've gotta give a shoutout to Xonotic for being the libre arena shooter for the modern era. Unlike games like Open Arena or Warsow that are terrified to diverge from the Q3/CPMA orthodox Xonotic experiments with twists on the formula to great effect, and it's a tragedy more people don't know about it. I don't think I've played another game with a grenade launcher as satisfying.

For real big boy software Meld is the text file comparison and merging gui program I wish I'd known about from day 1. It requires gtk which is unfortunate but that's a small price to pay for finally being able to stop using diff.
 
if the GPL itself is generally infeasible to use for commercial projects
The GPL for commercial projects, gives the same rights as pre-DRM physical stuff to licensees (as in you can't prevent them from copying and sharing it, revoke their access and shit)

It's no different than all rights reserved ("pirates" can just live in a 3rd world country)
