    Don't know. I do know that they intimated that they had more plans like this one in store on the download link page- and to let you know when they come about...or not.

    Code release a side, I for one, find it very amusing that Linux users contributed (money wise) almost the same as Windows users, even though the market share is ~95/1.

    Hopefully this project will generate more PR. It'll counter the "Linux user base is too small to be considered" crowd.

    No they didn't. The Pie-Chart doesn't represent the number of contributions per platform, but the sum. So Linux-users actually contributed approximately half as much money as Windows-users. See here. But it's still a great result for us.

    I stand corrected. As you said, impressive never the less. Thanks for the link.

    Yes, it is. One more data point to have in hand when talking with studios and publishers- and a VERY good one.

    Talk is cheap. Write a better game with professional graphics and sound then release it for free, or stop complaining.

    I thought Linux users just wanted open source, not handouts. I guess I was wrong.

    Sir, please lighten up before using the interwebs. What do you think I've meant in the first place? Maybe that I can't create artwork?

    Thank you then, Mr. Obvious.
