Oh, I think the marketplace is a *GREAT* idea, and in fact is *WELL* overdue. They should have been doing this all along! I was just laughing at Oleg’s follow-up phrasing of one (of many!) ways you could utilize OSS to your financial benefit. In fact, I almost titled the post “On SourceForge and Open Source Obfuscation”, (and probably should have now that I think of it), but chose not to for some odd reason.
I was in a hurry, and didn’t extend things as I normally will, so my apologies to those of you left with the impression that I thought the SourceForge Marketplace was in any way a bad thing.
Signs on the Sand: SourceForge Marketplace
Sounds interesting. Another way to get rich - create great open source product, make your code unreadable, provide no documentation and then sell support :)
