See my other posting. I think it addresses this concern.

Well the main reason for having to change our approach is that there haven't
been any really big code contributions due to the partial open-source nature
of the drivers and therefore Linuxant staff had to do all the work.

If everyone adopts a radical position and nobody is willing to pay (not even the
modest price of a license) so that we put food on the table and cover basic
expenses (development, support, hosting, etc..), we might have no other choice
but to discontinue the project.
