Well hey mac users have the money, they are mostly adults or teens with jobs. Linux same, windows have lots of kids and more users so what do u expect? :P
I tried my best! I donated just above the mac users for my bundle! haha
I believe this is because a vast majority of Unix-base OS users would like to see more natively supported games for their respective platforms. Windows has been deemed the default PC gaming system by many AAA studios and as such already has a large number of available titles. To the contrary, Linux and Mac gaming is still pretty much struggling with only recently having received a couple of high-end games, one platform less then the other. Thus this is, in my opinion, at least one of the reasons why the current situation is as explained in the article above.
People should at least be paying $2 per game considering that is what a good quality App on the Apple store usually goes for.
I don't expect kids to have credit cards or pay-pal to buy this. I'll bet that the Windows numbers are being brought down by a lot of asshat adults who only pay $0.01 - $1.00.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
This is true. As a Linux user, I had no problem paying $13 bucks x 2 for two copies.
Most Windows fanboys say that us 'freetards' won't pay for anything, but it's categorically untrue. I've bought plenty of full-price games via Steam that I play only under Linux. Linux to many of us is simply about not getting painted into proprietary corners, and not getting told how we may or may not access our own legally obtained data. Having easy access to a metric-@#$-load of free software via the package manager is just a bonus; We have no problem with supporting people that are supporting us.
It's not mentioned in this article, but if you already bought HIB3, or buy it now for greater than the average price, NOW YOU ALSO GET ALL THE HIB2 games (downloads + Steam and Desura codes). I already owned it, but I used the extra Steam code they gave me to install it for one of my kids. These guys are GREAT. Buy it today!
