In response to Arabic Translator, I will summarize all of my open core blogs in a few lines: The whole point around open core is to articulate the most scalable business model for commercial open source. Offering services is not more scaleable than offering a product. That's because with professional services, you have to maintain qualified headcount and keep them billable. For a product, you simply charge additional customers for the same bits you already created for customer #1.
