New Commercial Application Available In Ubuntu Software Center

Just finished my updates and when I opened the Ubuntu Software Center what do I see?
Yes, a new application in the "For Purchase" section of the Ubuntu Software Center.

Up until last week I only saw Fluendo Dvd Player in there, but this week I can also purchase a game called Brukkon.
Its a challenging logic puzzle game that you can buy for the price of US$ 7.00.

Take a look at the app center with 2 apps available: 

And the description of Brukkon: 

The artwork of the game seems to be pretty nice after looking at some screen-shots on their website

After playing the demo, available on their website, I really wanted to see more.
So I'll probably buy this game in a few days because its worth it in my opinion.

Its nice to see that they're making it possible to purchase a few commercial applications in Ubuntu now but I would really like to see some more applications added.
This is a good start, but keep improving your game Ubuntu... 

Replaced Windows 7 with Ubuntu Netbook Remix 10.04 on my brother's medion netbook

When I visited my dad and brother this week, I noticed that my brother had gotten a Medion E1222 netbook.
He told me that "it ran rather sluggish and that a number of features were locked."

Being a Linux enthusiast, I immediately proposed to replace it with Ubuntu netbook remix.
Sure enough, after watching some screen casts on Youtube, he thought it would be pretty cool to run the ubuntu netbook remix instead of that bloated Windows 7.
