Linux is the soul, which most get paid not by direct sales. Either way, both sets of developers are doing amazing things and pushing the idea that Linux could make money. Take Linux and hack it into a perfect gaming kernel? Oh wait, Sony did that with one of the BSD variants didn't they (free/open, not sure)? That's right, they did. MS should start learning, cause Apple does almost the same concept. Darwin kernel? It's open, how else has AMD support worked out even to ML?

Yeah, I actually see this as a win win. We need more people proving that you can take FOSS code, make something better, make money. You don't even have to keep the code hidden. The majority of people don't want to compile it, that's work trust me. Ever compile FireFox or Chrome? Yeah, that's a laugh. Most here haven't, cause it's at least 8GB required and a PH II at 3.5 does it in about 30 min (45? don't remember). Who the crap wants to wait 30+ min for this stuff to compile? Not to mention which flags do you need, what is system specific, yadda yadda yadda yadda.

No, most people want it now and already built. This majority pays for it to be that way, hence you make money. Anyone could hack up an android system for their device, do they?
