Zeta "An operating system without an office suite is limited in its mass market appeal, making this a fairly serious issue. When yellowTAB decided to update ZETA's compiler, much thought was given to this problem in particular, and finally an answer made itself clear."

Actually you don't need proprietary software to fund projects. For example, Red Hat funds major projects (Glibc, GCC, Linux, Xorg, GNOME, etc) and they're a free software company.

There's a difference between commercial and proprietary software. Commercial software can be Free/open source, where proprietary software by definition is not.
