I was once addicted to Civ I for a month or two. I dislike Civ II (it
has far too much fluff to my taste); I've only played it once. The
Freeciv interface is spartan, very Civ I-like, which is something I
really appreciate. It took me a while to memorise all the tiles and
units - surely better, more intuitive sets could be designed - but
after a few games it's no longer a problem. There are a few annoying
quirks in the interface, in the actual interaction; this is a real
problem, but many of them have been smoothened out in recent months,
and I'm sure this will continue. (One remaining problem: some of the
popup dialogs interfere with what you're doing (for instance, typing to
the chat line) and actually block it until you dismiss them; this is
very frustrating when they pop up at the wrong moment).
But I have no problem with Xaw programs in principle. Freeciv is my
favourite Civ by far.

Yes, issue 'ai <yourname>' in the server.
You an even break in into running games by connecting as an AI player.
There should probably be an option to disable this.
