I realise I'm in danger of sounding like an apologist, but there aren't many companies making stuff for the classic Amigas on a commercial basis. Those that are are keeping the old hardware relevant and letting newcomers (and returnees) get into the Amiga without needing to spend a fortune. An Amiga 500 + trapdoor 512k + aca500plus won't break the bank and can run a large percentage of all Amiga software.

Some sort of controlling commercial entity isn't a bad thing necessarily, if they're actually producing stuff and so have a self-interest in growing the number of active users.

The trick is to persuade such companies that they can have their cake and eat it with open source. I believe they can (many a company is making millions from open source stuff).
