Although it had a humble beginning as a game for iOS, Angry Birds has become a huge product now. It is now available for Android, Windows and recently Mac OS X. It is also coming to consoles like PS3, XBox360 and Wii.
It seems like Ubuntu users may also have reason to cheer as well as the popular game may be heading to the Ubuntu Software Center after the consoles.
The Ubuntu Software Center is actually a GUI front end to apt-get which allows users, who are uncomfortable command line, to browser, install or remove applications through simple mouse clicks. While most applications available in the Ubuntu Software Center are free, support for paid applications has also been added in the recent release of Ubuntu.
When asked if they have plans of bringing Angry Birds to Ubuntu, the Rovio, the maker of Angry Birds, responded that they are looking into bringing it to the Ubuntu Software Center. Although this is not an outright confirmation that Ubuntu users will get Angry Birds, it is neither an outright denial which makes me hopeful.
