Real Networks Earning Report - 86 Million from Shareware

Real Networks just announced their fourth quarter earnings. Gamasutra was kind enough to highlight Real's revenue from downloadable game sales:

The company's downloadable gaming revenue also saw strong growth, with $23.9 million for the quarter, up 53 percent over last year, and posting $86.2 million in total game revenue for the year.
Eighty-six million from downloadable game sales. Pretty impressive, if you recall that downloadable games used to be called shareware. Ten years ago, people would have called you crazy if you told them that you'd be making 80,000 dollars from selling shareware, let alone 80 million.
