There are plenty of software companies that sell software that runs on
Linux, and make money.
I'd be suprised if people like Adobe wouldn't all of a sudden have a
large Linux market share if they would just release their various
software with a Linux version.
Oracle and IBM, for two, seem to be making plenty of dough off of
proprietary Linux software (not to mention Novel/SuSE, RedHat, etc, who
sell "enterprise" linux distributions with some proprietary crap
included in it).
