Comment 1767 for bug 1

Hi :)
There might be proprietary software in the Software Centre but that is like saying you can't walk into a high-street shop if you have no intention of buying anything.

Of course you can still buy and sell Cds or Dvds with Ubuntu on and of course you can still sell support services either by the hour or as structured support for for a given length of time or whatever.  Selling the Cds/Dvds has always  been a bit of a moral grey area = it's allowed by the GPL but people sometimes tend to feel it's wrong somehow.  Selling support is fine and puts you in an open competitive market with plenty of fair competition that people could look-up online.

Tom :)
