How many of those were bought by libraries and/or other public lending
places? ;) (I'm sure you have no idea)
We should also compare that to the amount of web hits that sites like
sound and midi for linux, ALSA, LAD, djcj get.
For example djcj receives around 60000 hits per month. This figure has
risen every month since May and shows no sign of flattening out. A large
portion of those are direct from ALSA website.

Being on stage with the band in front of crowds shouting, "Get off! No! We want normal music!", I think that was more like acting than anything I've ever done.
