A Humble Bundle Not for Linux

Humble Team has launched a new Humble THQ Bundle with seven Windows only game titles. These games are made by THQ and are locked to Steam DRM.

The bundle includes following titles: Company of Heroes (and its two expansions Opposing Fronts and Tales of Valor), Darksiders, Metro 2033, Red Faction: Armageddon and Saints Row: The Third.

The deal is pretty great and it would have been cool if the games were available for Linux.

Here is a official response from John Graham from Humble Team (via The Verge):

We are hopefully going to raise a huge amount of money for charity and expose a ton of new customers to the Humble Bundle model. We have been debuting more games than ever for Mac and Linux (and Android — and even got to do the digital debut an eBook this year!) and this promotion will help us continue to do so. We are humbly hopeful that our customers will see this as a good thing instead of a permanent departure from what we have done and will continue to do.

What do you think about it? Do you think Windows only non DRM free bundles will hurt Humble image?
