Approximately 75% of LiveCode users are using the open source edition 
and do not have an active subscription.

Without counting bug reporting [1], approximately 98% of the changes to 
the LiveCode engine and IDE are made by the core dev team, and most of 
this work is funded by subscriptions.  Almost all of those changes go 
directly into the open source edition.


[1] Some of our open source edition users are very diligent about 
carefully testing LiveCode and filing extremely high-quality bug reports.
