Checking licenses...

From time to time we have to spend time on checking serial numbers. We search with a few search engines, we check a couple of forums and download tons of applications.
To give you a few statistics of todays search: We downloaded 827 popular applications. After unpacking, we found 744 applications. Some archives failed to download, some failed to unpack and some do not contain applications. But from those 744 applications, we got 93 applications made with REAL Studio. That's 12.5% in this sample and I think it got more compared to my last search.
From that 93 REAL Studio made applications, we found 50 using our plugins. That's more than half, but for statistics, it's a too small sample.

Sadly we found one application using an unknown serial number. Seems like someone hacked the plugins!? Well, we will have to think about consequences on this case. Used tags:

12.5%. Wow. I didn’t realize that Real Studio had that much penetration.

Were there PC applications included in the list? How did you pick “popular” apps?

Quite interesting that MBS powers over half of all commercial Real Studio apps.

Picking them is easy as you go to your favorite download page and download the top 1000 apps.
In this case it was Mac OS X only software.
And it’s quite normal to see our plugins in there. If you’d read our customer list, you’d read the who is who of REAL Software developers. :-)
