how is this any different than what we have now?
This question seems to have been adequately addressed by man_ls in one of the threads above.
We already are in a situation where "game software" is free
Some game software is free but most is not. I don't believe there's a good reason for that (with the possible exception of the 1% of mainstream games that truly push the boundaries of hardware performance -- and even 1% is probably overstating things). I think it's just culture and force of habit. Everyone would win if we could change that situation. Companies that make games could reuse solutions to problems outside their core competency and people who play games could do so on any platform they happen to like.
