    I've donated twice.......and never used homebrew. I hope someday they'll figure out how to make preware and all homebrew standalone, no pc needed.

    I can dream can't I, and that's why I donate.

    I've donated a couple times, to Jason as well. It's about time to open up the wallet and do it again.

    How many times has Preware been downloaded?...I know the number will include repeat downloads...however was just curious...would love to figure out the math even if it was a dollar per download...as well as individual package downloads...Is there a way to get these statistics? Is there a link to these statistics?...

    Back in May, based on trawling through ipkg.preware.org web server logs, we calculated that Preware had been downloaded 441,587 times and the Virtual Keyboard had been downloaded 336,860 times. Note that these figures include upgrades, so the number of unique installations will be much fewer than that. We haven't gone to the trouble of calculating recent figures.

    Yes, we'd love to have $1 for each of those downloads ... historically we have received donations amounting to around 1 cent per download of Preware, and it has all gone into hosting and server hardware costs, and developer hardware devices.

    No-one in WebOS Internals gets cash directly - all funds go back into hardware or expenses that benefit the whole community.

    Keeping the homebrew ecosystem infrastructure running effectively is not easy or cheap, so we do rely on community donations just to keep everything running smoothly so that Preware can continue to download and install packages, patches, and kernels for you to use. Even WebOS Quick Install from Jason's independent Canuck Software organisation accesses our ipkg.preware.org servers to install packages from the homebrew application feeds and package online repository.

    Wow!...thanks for sharing Rod. It seems to me that even if a third...or a quarter of these were first time downloads @ $1 each that is quite a bit of funding...however your number of 1 on average is really a sad number. I don't want to judge those that have not donated...however for all the the enhancements that the WebOS Internals community has sacrificed their time on I would expect that a trip to that local coffee shop etc could be skipped one day even to donate just one measly dollar. I am shocked now that there has been such little response in numbers to this thread...but then again @1 on average maybe I shouldn't. We have such a great community here...there must be some great ideas that we can pool together to increase donations...

    Yes.

    Wouldn't a poll have been more productive? Just sayin..

    Yes to these guys, Jason, and several other devs, on multiple occasions. And will again.

    You are probably right. Been here a while and have never set a poll...also wanted to get more feedback than what a poll may give...
