Comment on "The Impact of MacHeist"
by Hkan Waara — Dec 18
Very insightful and balanced post; a good analysis of it all. I basically agree.

However, my personal opinion remains that I find MacHeist's intentions greedy (charity & their alleged OS X shareware-community goodwill counted in).

Yes, it's a free market, and the developers have made their decision, but taking roughly 90% of the profit, making around $500,000 pure profit for themselves* (while the devs, on average, based on the same calculations would get around 1-2%) is simply not fair, any way you choose to look at it.
