As for Ximian, they did quite well and got several contracts. They did so well in fact that Novell bought them up.

They got sold because their VCs needed to get them sold.

Hans Reiser contributes to the Linux kernel because he can sell proprietary modules based off of the Reiser file system.

What's that got to do with the LGPL? The LGPL doesn't make that happen - quite the opposite.
