THQ considering developing for Linux following success of Humble Bundle

After making more than $5 million in the THQ Humble Bundlle (which a portion of will have gone to charity) THQ are considering developing for the Linux OS.

While the THQ bundle was extremely successful it did spark a little debate from those who were used to most the games in previous bundles to be DRM free and available on Mac and Linux also. Well, the sound of a million GNU-lovers (that sounds wrong) has reached THQ's ear.

Cheshire Theyain tweeted to THQ's president Jason Rubin "can you guys consider doing some games for Linux? I know it seems a small market, but look at what Valve is doing." which got the response "Got the Linux message load and clear via #HumbleBundle feedback. Evaluating cost/benefit as we speak." (Jason Rubin, PC, The Humble THQ Bundle, THQ)

This really has more to do with the Steam Box than anything else.
what? quiet.. So it has to do with a console/pc that hasn't been seen and not the millions od dollars from the humble bundle? ok..
