they state it's only worth 25$ (which is what ~£10?). That's less than I spend on a pizza

Needless to say that one would consume much more that one pint during standard friday pub visit. Indie games cost significantly less and still average Moscow citizen isn't ready to pay for them the same amount of money he or she would pay for beer/pizza/e.t.c.

I don't know why they rush bundles out like that, with no linux demos or unfinished games or only one game now (!)...

When I bought the previous bundle, I didn't spend that much on it, $20 or so I think.. Then they bundled in all those games with it, but I was having a bit of trouble getting many of the games to work due to buggy graphics drivers.. Eventually figured it out and by then the bundle was over and I couldn't donate them more money..
This bundle, I paid $60 for it.. About half of that to the EFF, another $5 to HumbleBundle and the rest to the game devs.. I didn't have any of the previous Frost games so they're all new to me.
I love seeing all the Windows users who donate maybe $4 for the bundle... And then the Linux users choosing to donate at least 2-3x that. The Windows users are only there for the bargain...
Coming from an iTunes user background, somehow I feel obligated to pay more money for DRM-free content as opposed to DRM content.. Like it's some kind of extra feature..
Being unmarried with a great job nets me a lot of extra cash, so I don't feel guilty about spending $60 on this bundle and I hope it'll help to make up for all the people who can't afford to donate that much.

now its a bundle now there are 2 games
And again no demo for Trauma.
There's the web thing but I couldn't make it work (got stuck at 1% then black screen forever) and even if it worked in firefox it doesn't mean the downloadable version will work...
You know, despite being linux geek I'm a long run user of Steam and I'm pretty happy with it even under linux/wine. So in my opinion DRM isn't a bad thing per se, what mostly matters is the way it done. Still it's pretty cool to have HiB games DRM-free and I agree that it might be considered an extra feature.
