I don't see the point of comparing Amiga OS to Linux in this particular matter. It's not like Amiga OS is a huge success atm just because someone still sells it.

I agree with @e-penguin & @ptyerman Open source would be good for Cloanto, they could be the overseer of the open source project but benefit from contributions from the community. And apart from selling updated ROMs they could surely sell updated Amiga OS installs on CF or SD cards with nice official stickers at a profit. A lot of ppl are lazy and wouldn't mind paying some €€ to avoid the hassle of doing it yourself..
At some point Cloanto wont be selling a lot of licences because they will have saturated the marked and also have nothing new to offer.
By releasing the sources they would rejuvenate their own business, I'm sure.
