The Developer Download Tier is a survival strategy framework that aims to guide the open source community, particularly to maximise developer download performance. The framework shows two tiers, displaying tier 1 as high surge software download by technical developer and non-developer and tier 2 as slow surge software download by technical developer and non-developer. Results show inconsistent download strategy between technical and non- technical developers, who apply criteria differently. Tier 1 technical developers targeted at appropriate license properties, non-windows operating system and C programming language whereas non-technical developers targeted appropriate license properties however non-windows operating systems and non C programming language. For Tier 2, technical developers targeted at appropriate license properties, operating system and programming language in different variations and non-technical developers targeted less appropriate license properties however operating systems and programming language on different variations.
