Humble Indie Bundle is the single greatest thing to happen to Linux in years

've been a full-time Ubuntu user for about five years and I don't own any consoles. If you approached me three or four years ago and asked which games I played, you might have received a rather defensive reply. High quality games were few and far between, that is, until May 2010 when things changed forever…

In May 2010, a tiny company called Wolfire — then only famous for a ninja rabbit simulator — convinced the devs of World of Goo, Aquaria, Gish and Penumbra that they should let gamers decide how much they should pay for a collection of games for a limited time. All had to be DRM-free and available for Windows, Mac and Linux. Wolfire added their own Lugaru to the offerings and launched the first Humble Indie Bundle.

The rest, as they say, is history.
