I see you don't understand it. Try to install Pixel and you'll see what does it mean "8 years of effort". Pavel doesn't want to get rich - at least not more than anybody else does. He just wants some reward for his work. And as you can see, the price includes some kinda support etc...
And why there's no room for profit applications in GNU/Linux world? I use Linux because I like it - not as a lifestyle. People who want to have their system 100% philosophicaly clean won't use Pixel. People who want to see their work done and feel like Pixel would help them would buy it.
Whenever I choose software for a specific task, I decide on the basis of usability and productivity, not philosophy.
Sorry for the poor english, few months already since I left school.
