GNOME Video Arcade
GNOME Video Arcade is a simple Mame frontend for any freedesktop.org compliant desktop environment.
GNOME Video Arcade recognizes that the frontend is not the point; the games are. As such, its chief design goal is to help you quickly find a game to play and then get out of the way. Its purpose is not to help you manage your ROM collection, nor to provide a confusing graphical interface for MAME's plethora of configuration options.
GNOME Video Arcade was written by Matthew Barnes and is released under terms of the GNU General Public License, version 3.
