"Our business model for open source is to sell the services. There are no ivory
towers here. We don't code in a vacuum. Every one who works at JBoss Group is
expected to bring in revenue with training, support or consulting. We're in
constant contact with our users. If they have criticism, we hear it. JBoss Group
grew from one employee in late April to 6 employees in late October. We don't
have, nor are we looking for VC funding. We are profitable, working at capacity
and growing as we go. We are an open source commercial success in the
making. JBoss Group will back up the JBoss offerings for the corporate IT
community."

... and a lot more like this.
