I find this an interesting dichotomy there, putting the acceptable/not 
acceptable line of making money with free software between single developers 
and companies. You also seem to assume that there are no single developers 
who exclusively make closed source apps for a living (like, say, 
freelancers), vice versa for companies. The first case scenario you are 
referring to is more like the Sveasoft case with the WRT54G firmwares, not 
the Trolltech approach we have seen so far.
