You very well could be right about nobody wanting to pay for a new Amiga OS but I would argue that there are just as many that wouldn't touch it if it were open source either. I don't have the time in a given day to sit and browse forums and newsgroups to figure out how to install a network driver, which is why I don't use Linux or any other open source operating system. To me the "nerd street cred" isn't worth the time it takes away from my family and my classic gaming.
