Humble Bundle: Linux Users Pay Most For Music Too

Music 2

dylan_- (1661) writes "It's well known that in the various game Humble Bundles — pay whatever you want for a variety of games — Linux users have consistently been the ones who voluntarily pay the most. Some have attributed this to the lack of games on Linux but the latest Bundle is for music rather than games and the trend continues. Linux users paying an average of $11.95, Mac $9.92 and Windows $7.50. Perhaps the old complaint of it being more expensive to hire Linux sys-admins is correct, meaning they tend to earn more and leaving Linux users with more disposable income?"

HB Inflation (2)

Linux donations to the Humble Bundle have been inflated by some improbably large contributions --- obviously not from individual gamers.

That said, the total return from Windows gamers has always been about 3/4 of the total, and for Linux about 1/8. If the total return is $5 million, the return from Linux is $625,000. Split among developers, charities, and the Humble Bundle itself.

The butter is spread thin.

No they haven't. Remove the "large" donations and you'd change the average by about a cent or two.

Oh no! It could be split, say, 10 ways between all those options. And then, if you're an indie game developer, there might be as many as three of you in the company! That only gives you $20,000 each for the two weeks! Barely worth getting out of bed for, huh?

Don't you microsofties have to spend some of your time on research? Or are you allowed to make up whatever crap you like as long as it's negative to humanity?
