While browsing the tubes today i stumbled across this post. I began to read the sob story totally un-aware of who its author was. It was in fact open source, indie games developer Luke Duke. Recently Luke drew attention with the release of his "Linux Tycoon" RTS .

While browsing the tubes today i stumbled across this post. I began to read the sob story totally un-aware of who its author was. It was in fact open source, indie games developer Luke Duke. Recently Luke drew attention with the release of his "Linux Tycoon" RTS .

To sum up his post, he had rather foolishly relied solely on Apples app eco-system to provide him and his family with income. Due to an internal server error over at apple, his app was made un-avaible losing Luke half a months revenue which he uses to feed and clothe his wife and child. Apple washed their hands of all responsibility, refusing to compensate him and eventually turned to stone walling him. Luke then sent out his appeal and has apparently since come up with the Linux Tycoon strategy game to mill up some revenue.
