    AFAIK they reach $850k just after three hours.

      The Linux contribution is still below the Mac - what are you people doing?

          This is by total orders, not by contribution. I imagine that if you considered total money contributed, the two are much closer to parity. I also imagine that Windows would not have quite so big a lead.

            I'm looking at the "total payments per platform" pie graph. At the moment, Mac + Linux are ~25%, Mac twice as much as Linux. The Introversion bundle has Mac at about the same percentage, but Linux is a bit bigger.

              This is a great bundle... I put $80 down this time...

              Just be aware that the system requirements on at least one of these games requires a card with SM3.0..

                Just don't forget to check your "Mark my purchase as Linux" checkbox! I bought the bundles at work, using Windows, which meant I had to change to Linux manually. I guess it might be Linux by default if you bought the Bundle using a browser on Linux.
                I wonder if Stallman's able to buy them via SSH...

                  Why do you think Stallman would be interested in some binary blobs?

                    Well, it was a joke referring to his rider and his views on internet and browsers. There he utters the classic words "I don't use browsers. I use SSH". But on another note to that, they used to release many games from the first two HiBs as free software after the bundle was over.

                      It has Super Meat Boy... 'nuff said. If a future bundle includes Minecraft it will probably reach 1 million in 1 hour.

                        I did it all for the bins

                        Super meat boy and jamestown! I really wanted a linux jamestown - Steam/Wine were not doing it for me. I paid 15 dollars cause i thought i was just rebuying games for the bins but the rest of the games look sick, much better bundle then recent ones imho.

                          Humble Indie Bundle #3 did include a limited Minecraft trial, not the same thing I know, but...

                          I believe Stallman did mention to someone in an email correspondence that he was fine with games having proprietary game data, as long as the engine and game code are free. That said, he is not much of a gamer, and would never buy anything without a guarantee it would be free software, so I doubt he would ever be interested.

                              Yea, they're all awesome games.. I just wish I could get more of them to run on my 6 year old laptop.. lol.. oh well.

                              BTW, anybody notice that one of the game companies has ties to Electronic Arts? How much you want to bet that they made Humble Bundle drop EFF in favor of Red Cross? Electronic Arts hates the EFF with a passion.
