Free software makes a lot of money with support - thats if they are a pure
software house. Some of these companies have also evolved into hardware
companies that develop products like MP3 players, or hard disks with
LAN ports and so on. And it allows embedded Linux gadget makers sales
of 3 million+ embedded Linux gadgets PER DAY. There is still scope to
increase that to 10 million+ per day because the world is still
developing and there so many more gadgets that so many more people still
wanting at lower cost.
