As if there wasn’t reason enough to be a fan of Canonical and its Ubuntu flavor of Linux (Unity aside), the company announced that it has joined forces with the Humble Indie Bundle (HIB) to both raise awareness of the ability to play high quality games on the free platform as well as raise money for some awesome causes. Starting with this latest bundle of independent DRM-free games, Ubuntu users have a streamlined installation process that utilizes the Ubuntu Software Center in conjunction with the HIB purchasing engine to make it easier than ever before to download and install the games being offered. For those of you who are avid fans of supporting both the open-source movement and independent development houses this is a win-win scenario!
Purchasing the current HIB for play on Ubuntu is indeed a simple process. If you have bought a previous bundle, you’ll be used to how things work on the HIB website: you pay what you think is fair for the titles being offered which gives you the right to download and install the games. Before this new partnership with Canonical, Linux users who bought the bundle would have to download the individual files and install the games themselves. Canonical has done away with that process by allowing users to authenticate with the Ubuntu Software Center site, after paying on HumbleBundle.com. It’s a pretty simple procedure when compared to the past mechanic.
