    Been playing Super Meat Boy a lot lately – fun game! Fun in a nostalgic, Commodore Amiga kind-of-way! All the discussions about Valve coming to Linux aside, this is where the USP of indie games lies; they’re small, original, fun games that you can play occasionally and that don’t take up too much processing power.

    Please split games out into a separate category!

    • Dalpi Vand

      I agree! It seems what all people do on Ubuntu is play games.

    Nice to see my app “Create Launcher” on #9 !

  • Kevin Norris

    So, basically, the paid apps are the Humble Bundle, Fluendo, and another game?

  • Dsaday

    full circle magazine is not free!

  • Leandro Martinez

    I’m using Ubuntu 10 Long Term Edition. Why I cannot make use of these applications?

  • Hyunkel

    Please split app into more categories and put something like the Google Play (Trending, Top Free, Top Paid) etc.. that will help people to catch up with the trend.
