Well one / a few persons experiences does not make a it truth. It only shows
that some people/companies can make money that way. It does not show the way
of the world.

All the .com's doing free software are not exactly making buckloads of
money. I guess we will se a pattern emerging in a few years where it will be
more obvius if it's a viable business model.
