I wish the numbers were greater. As a Linux-only gamer, I am grateful for your efforts to support Linux.
Here's another thought: How many windows purchases were made by friends of Linux gamers, who recommended the game to their Windows-using friends? I just recommended it to a friend of mine, and have spoken highly of it in the past. I streamed it on Twitch a few times. I wouldn't be surprised if supporting Linux actually has a slightly higher return than is known.
