And for those of us who like our nostalgia updated, Oolite is perhaps the best Elite ever produced, extensible to boot, and with a decent 3D card with shader support can look stunning as well. (Its hardware requirements are... quite a bit bigger than old-style Elite's, though. But if you've ever hankered for the fabled ArcElite with its independently-running solar systems, this gives you that.)
Oh, and it's free software of course, as well as proof that the Mac and Linux communities can do great things if they work together (it's a GNUstep+SDL+OpenGL app).
