This just proves you can't survive doing widget frosting or selling books and t-shirts in a GPL world.

You either need to be an IBM or Sun selling hardware or you need to be a Oracle or Novell selling closed source goods. Yeah yeah you'll come back with Redhat - but the honest truth - they are alive because IBM hasn't decided to come out with their own brand of Linux (I guess after the SCO dust settles, IBM will do that). Oracle's already eating into their business and so has Ubuntu.
