Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

The Humble Indie Bundle is back! Just like last year, Wildfire is offering a pay-what-you-want (any price whatsoever), DRM-free bundle of 5 excellent indie games.

We don't use DRM. When you buy these games, they are yours. Feel free to play them without an internet connection, back them up, and install them on all of your Macs and PCs freely. There is no time-limit on your downloads.

The games included in the Humble Indie Bundle for this year are Braid, Machinarium, Cortex Command, Osmos and Revenge of the Titans. The games are worth $85, but like I said, you can pay whatever you want for all 5 of them. Futher more, you can choose to divide your money between the developers of the 5 games and charity (Electronic Frontier Foundation and Child's Play).

An interesting fact is that even though the Linux users have contributed less (the reason for this is obvious: there are fewer Linux users) then the Windows and Mac OSX users, they tend to pay a lot more and have an average purchase of $14.23, while Windows users have an average of $5.69 and $7.70 for Mac.

Last year, the Humble Indie Bundle was such a success that all the games available in the bundle were open-sourced.
