I have had TONS of conversation with Windows/Mac users saying that most of the people who use Linux as their primary OS are either cheap or total geeks. I always come back at them by stating Linux is a lot more flexible in terms of customization and freedom in general because you do what you want with the system, but they still wont change their minds.
Well, today I found something that clearly states the opposite, Linux users can be geeks, but they are definitely not cheap 😀 and I will show it to you.
The humblebundle is a pack of independent games released under the following conditions:

– You support charity, there are 2 foundations to which you can donate
– DRM (Digital Rights Management) Free, this means you can Install them on any number of computers without limitations.
– You can redeem them on Steam, OnLive, and Desura! (if you want, they provide standalone clients)
-Cross Platform , Windows, Mac and Linux Supported
Here is a video promoting the bundle, it is very funny and the best marketing I have seen in a while:
