In case any of the gamers among us haven't heard, a group of indie
developers have gotten together to offer their wares a truly awesome
price, whatever you want to pay.  If you want to pay 1 penny, then so
be it, the 6 games are yours.  They are splitting the proceeds 7 ways
with the five developers and 2 charities (the EFF and Child's Play)
each getting a share, which the buyer can choose (i.e. all to
developers, all to charity, and combination thereof).

All of the games are on PC, Mac and Linux, and at least 4 of them are
going open source once this offer is over.

The website is here: http://www.wolfire.com/humble

At the site, you'll notice that while Linux users only account for
around 10% of the purchases, they account for 25% of the donations, a
ratio that is higher than both Mac and PC.
