Humble Bundle 3 + most expensive gag ever?

The HB3 is out now;

http://www.humblebundle.com/

But what caught my eye was a little donation war;

I've got them at day one this time . I've missed bundle 2
The numbers looks really great and only 5 days passed.

Btw, just go World of Goo (from bundle 1) on iPhone and playing it with the fingers is really amazing.

Unfortunately none of these games seem like anything I want to own... (maybe that Trine thing is worth a shot...). Shadow Grounds was always meh... No idea what's with that Splot thing... and that other Jack Claw Beta thing is Windows only so that's total crap...

May buy it tomorrow just for the hell of it tho...

Shadowgrounds is only really good as a co-op game, not worth considering else.

Trine's very highly rated, I played only a few minutes but it seemed rather nice.

Well, its just a bunch of unfinnished source code no? If you can be bothered it could be compiled for other platforms.

Sure, but what I mean is that the Bundle this time is rather poor, still buying it tho!

EDIT:

Poor is the wrong word here... cause all the games are of great visual quality an all. I just mean it seems less then the first bundle.

EDIT2:
I love how the average Linux user is more then twice above the windows user with the amount donated!

I'm guessing maybe its because the average age of a Linux user is more, thus they have more cash.
Probably the same for Mac users too, only they are broke anyway because they are mac users :P

Well, seeing that the Linux users are 25% of buyers right now, and the linux market is only around what 3%? I'd say it's not that they have more money. I'd venture a guess that Linux users are on general more consciouss about such actions then the average windows user.

In other words, Windows users are cheap bastards who would never pay for something they could get for free

EDIT: We have another bid:
1 Your Turn $2,000.03

These people are either very rich or very drunk

Seeing you can change your bid, once you payed 2k for it giving a few additional cents doesn't seem that much...

Also, TRINE IS AWESOME!

Maybe, but I think that SubHub list thing is smart enough not to duplicate the same bid twice.

Played Trine about a year ago and it felt to me like The Lost Vikings but with slightly better graphics.
