GNU/Linux Users Pay and Buy More !

As you might heard 2dboy , the company (of 2 people) behind the indie game World-Of-Goo (WOG) made a birthday sales week, which was extended to 13 days.
During the birthday sales users could pay for WOG from 0.1$ to how they valued the game and the company.
GNU/Linux desktop users which hold the market share of about 1% (according to some sources, I personally doubt this number ) accounted for 17% of all sales ! this is 14,152 people (of the overall 83,250) ! truly amazing number.

As Koen Witters from Koonsolo said on our interview and published on his website (after the insightful discovery) – “Linux users are the most eager to buy an indie game”
He was indeed right about it.

But there is more…
GNU/Linux users are also eager to pay more then any other platform !
On this birthday sales day the GNU/Linux users chose to pay $3.45 for the game while the Mac user payed $2.52 and the Windows users payed only $1.95.
Those are off course average numbers, some chose to pay $0.1 and some even $150 !

So this proves once more, if developers support us by making a GNU/Linux client, then we will surly support them and make it worth for them to develop more games for GNU/Linux.
