I can understand the porting is a big deal. I can understand that Linux seems a relatively small audience. But it also seems that MANY people will pay and PAY WELL for a Linux version. Could you not work something out, like "We will do the port if we get pre-orders of $X"? Could you not send out a survey asking "Do you want a Linux version, and if so, how much will you pay?"Lana wrote:Yes I want make a Donation for a Linux Edition too. Only for the Developing!
The Pro Version-Key, I will buy seperately.
Or make a crowdfunding, please. I think, you can calculate a maximum of finance you need to do this.
Your Windows version is WELL established. Right now you are mostly fixing bugs (or working on the long-awaited "next version". But this is a business opportunity. If you don't want it to be OSS/freeware, FINE. We will pay. Do you like money? Are you in business to make money, or not?
You are throwing away a valuable (as in, $$$$) opportunity to be the Killer App for music on Linux. You already have an Android version - how hard could it be? Your customers are demanding it. They are begging you. They are saying "Shut up and take my money!" Why are you ignoring it? If you need xtra cycles, hire some extra help with the pre-order money. I assure you, once it is released, word will get around and every music=loving Linux user on the planet will buy it.
You are consistently silent on this issue. Can you at least explain what the reasons are? Is it because you think it would be a difficult port? Is it because you think there will not be enough users? Is it because you feel you are too busy? WHAT IS IT??
Sorry to sound harsh, guys - I love MM and have for years. I'm on your side! I want you to be successful and make money! I want to throw money at you! Why don't you want my money???
