ALL FOSS parts of the code IS available through his website, with all changes included, so he IS giving back what the license tells him to.

The reason this is closed source is not because Robert hates FOSS, it's because he wants to keep control of the project HE started and the 30$ that includes the final version and all betas before it goes for things like paying for occasional code ransoms, buying hardware to debug on etc etc. He isn't ripping anyone off.

and if you read the release notes for each beta, those who paid 30$ are getting much for their investment.
