This is an interesting subject to me, definitely, and I'd been thinking
of posting a while ago on a subject like that last sentence I quoted.
I've been curious what kinds of models people--i.e., programmers--use
nowadays for making a profit on OSS, since I haven't really read up on
it since graduating about four years ago. Is that a fit subject for an
SVLUG meeting (or at least for discussion here)?
