Considering buying World of Goo from Ubuntu Software Center, but not sure what happens after that.

All my computers use the same Ubuntu SSO account - does this mean I can install it on more than one machine for the one fee?

Yes, you can do it via single sso account, But it may be illegal as per the terms and conditions of that game – Tachyons Dec 27 '12 at 16:24
...and you don't get to see those until you've commited to pay? – artfulrobot Dec 27 '12 at 16:42
@Tachyons I recommend posting that, or something like it, as an answer. artfulrobot: That's a good point. Arguably paid apps should be required to show you the EULA before you buy them. I recommend reporting that as a bug. I'd report it against the software-center package in Ubuntu. If it's not considered a real bug, it can be closed; if it belongs somewhere else, it can be retargeted to affect a different project/package. – Eliah Kagan Dec 27 '12 at 17:07

I would recommend buying the game on steam. If you do so you would be able to install and use it on multiple machines and/or operating systems. Though I don't know how stable the steam linux beta currently is running. It is worth a shot.
