Hi Thomas,

This is a good idea, but I think that the figures I would get from these lists would be a bit too general unless therea re specific lists for Mac and Linux audio games. Instead, what I think I might do is to post a survey on the Blastbay website and of course on this list and a bunch of other distribution channels, asking straight out whether people would purchase either BGT or say Q9 if it were available for Mac or Linux. Now, considering that I would have to purchase a Mac myself in order to even begin a port, I would have to get a strong interest; at least 250 or 300 potential customers for each platform if I am to take on such an endeavour.

Kind regards,

Philip Bennefall

Hi Philip,
I have a thought on this. Have you ever signed up to say the Mac
Visionaries mailing list or one of the VI Linux related mailing lists?
The reason I ask is you could talk to the list moderators to get a
number of list members for each of those lists and compile a general
idea of how many blind Linux and blind Mac users are out there. That
could determine if porting BGT to Mac or Linux is financially
worthwhile for you.

Hi Travis,

It is certainly something that I will do, as soon as I can verify that the
demand for a Mac OSX or Linux version is as high as the demand for Windows
or marginally close to it. When this is the case, I shall certainly make
ports to both of these operating systems but until I can be certain that
there is a large enough market, I'll have to hold off on it. When the time
comes, however, I would indeed be most greatful for any help with the Mac

Kind regards,
