SilverPlatter responded on SPIN-L to a brief thread (just click around for it) asking if SP had considered the free software model. The answer, to paraphrase, was "we thought about it, but it wouldn't work with our business model." Understandable... but hey, there are other business models out there, too: just ask Cygnus, RedHat, Caldera...
SilverPlatter statement: no source for you
