    Default Humble Bundle #4 Rakes In $1M USD In One Day

    Phoronix: Humble Bundle #4 Rakes In $1M USD In One Day

    The Humble Indie Bundle #4, which just launched yesterday, is off to a really great start. In less than 24 hours this collection of cross-platform indie games has pulled in more than one million dollars...

    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.
