MMORPG.COM - Guild Wars 2 - The Fifth Profession.
ArenaNet Community Manager Martin Kerstein recently broke the silence on new Guild Wars 2 information over at Guild Wars 2 fansite GuildWars2Guru, teasing that ArenaNet plans to unveil the fifth profession for Guild Wars 2 in January. So, what will that fifth profession be? That's what we'll be talking about this week. I strongly believe the fifth profession to join the Guild Wars 2 roster will be the return of the Mesmer for a number of reasons.

TildeHash - Why Indie Games Need GNU+Linux. Thanks Ant.
Seven dollars and fourteen cents! We're willing to pay more than 107% more! More than double the price Windows users pay. And this was true for the first "Humble Indie Bundle" as well, the numbers were a little different though: Windows average was $8.05, Mac average was $10.18, GNU+Linux average was $14.52. So in the first "Humble Indie Bundle" everyone was willing to pay a little more, maybe because the games were more appealing, maybe because the games got "Open Sourced" once they made a million dollars, and maybe the current "Humble Indie Bundle" will see people paying more as it continues to run.

Another (related) factor is that some of these games are newly available to Linux as of this bundle. For example, "Braid" got a lot of publicity around its original release (and deservedly so), so any Windows gamer who wanted to play Braid would very likely have already bought it, and therefore not include much (if any) money for that game in their HIB purchase price.

Admittedly I don't know if this would have been a big factor, but it most certainly would have been a factor.
