Those numbers are for "Wildly Successful" shareware. And yes, there are titles that manage this.

$300,000/year for shareware is not unheard of. $30,000/year for shareware is somewhat common.

But there is shareware that never sells more than 50 units. It all depends on the product.

I don't believe there are any misleading statements in the article.
