Don't forget the community is willing to pay for products, but paying a developer is another story. The "vultures" make the products and pay those developers.

The community would, I think at least, do nothing and accomplish nothing. We wouldn't be able to set a course, we wouldn't be able to define standards, we wouldn't be able to even get a one way to go.

You can say what you want from Cloanto, but they appear to have at least payed some support for AROS and WinUAE. And they developed "AmigaOS" 3.1 into 3.X (there are a number of improvements in there).
