Did you know.....

...Ubuntu Software Center (USC) has for purchase games and apps?

Did you know how easy it was to get them? No!
Well here's how, in Natty Narwhal 11.04 Open USC from it's icon in the app launcher and click on the "for purchase" tab in the left hand side of the app then click on an app.
Click on "More info" and then on buy.
Now sign in or up for an Ubuntu Single Sign On Account.
Now type in your name, address and your card details in the secure app.
Now type in your password to install the app and done.

OMG!Ubuntu have been pretty good at reporting on the apps they like and why not, how ever you can have the same impact by simply adding a review to the app you purchased to let other users know what's hot and what's not.

By the way some you might like to look out for:
Uplink: a classic game where strategy and speed will keep you out of prison while you race around hacking the world.

Family Farm: The sims go to farmville you know it can't be bad right :)

Steel Storm2: Top down classic shootem up, it's fast pretty and explosive. Oh did I mention addictive?

Darwinia: One of the prettiest god games I've seen.

Fluendo DVD Player: for everyone that needs to have a good dvd player on their box

Codec Packs: They do what they say on the tin

World of Goo: If you haven't heard of this where have you been in a cave? A great physics based game

and more....

Keep checking in though as USC gets more apps on a fairly regular basis and I'd hate for you to miss out on the one that is perfect for you :)

Now go enjoy you computer in new and funky ways.
