I also do not understand your logic... you need someone (or a team) who cares for the software, be it open source or closed. When somebody drops the platform opensourcing at least offers the chance that someone later takes the torch. Keeping it closed and dropping the platform means end of the software. There are countless amiga programs where this happened.
