I don't disagree with any of these paths, and they look sound & fair to
me. As long as the source code remains open and (preferably) binary
installers remain available, I don't have any problem with this (and I
don't think it has anything to do with you "not grokking open source",
unless you're conflating the popular perception of the benefit of open
source beginning and ending at "free stuff", instead of the more
meaningful aspects (including standards adherence and source code
availability). I absolutely think selling support to enterprises should
be one avenue to focus on.
