I recently read that Uplink was available from Software Centre. But I go to the "For purchase" section of the software centre and there are only 7 entries. There's no trace of Uplink (or Darwinia). I'm running 32-bit natty and have refreshed my software sources, installed all updates, etc. Is this app not available because I live in Australia? Is there any way to make it appear so i can spend my $$?

I seem to remember that if there's only a 32bit version, users of 64 bit Ubuntu will not see it in the list and vice versa. – Johanna Larsson Mar 29 '11 at 13:20
thanks @shintoist, I've added the fact I'm using 32-bit ubuntu to the question. – Felix Mar 29 '11 at 13:39
it is possibly because you are running Natty – RolandiXor Mar 29 '11 at 15:19
Thanks I never knew those got added. – Reuben Swartz Mar 29 '11 at 19:34
@Roland Taylor: Thanks, it looks like it's not available for Natty. It doesn't appear on any of my 3 machines running natty, but I've now checked a machine that's still running Maverick and it's available there. Cheers! – Felix Mar 31 '11 at 4:15

That application is likely not available for Natty (11.04).
