Nearly the same like with GNU/Linux.

The PalmPilot hasn't DRM and commercial softare hast been sold 
succsessfull - I bought several licence.
For GNU/Linux I have a selfpaid student licence for microstation and 
maple and I would buy other close source for GNU/Linux - 
e.G. a navigation system with good maps. 

Of course would I let this close source software run in a own
vserver guest... ;)

So my motivation is not to get everything for free...
and when the commercial software is combinated with a good 
service.. it would become more attractive :) 

What I would dislike when the service page is full with external
advertisment google.analytics.scripts and that it smells like
that this company is selling my adress, interests and my user behavior.
