Mac OS X As you have surely noticed by now, Apple's CEO Steve Jobs held his keynote speech yesterday at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco. So far, the responses have been mixed; I have seen a lot of excitement, but also a lot of disappointment. Personally, I am not really sure where I stand.

My dream is for there to someday be a way to create a multi-million-dollar game and release it as Free Software, and still make money - and not because you charge for "services" or "servers". I believe the reimbursement element needs to be built into the system, but I don't see how.

You could make a deal like the gpl does where everybody wins. You keep the game closed source for an amount of time(to make money) where people both pay for the game but also for the fact that it will be opensourced after 2 to 3 years.

Like WineX/Cedega?

p.s., I know they contribute code back, just like Codeweavers does. But in general, I haven't seen the "HostageWare" concept play out well.
