I do, in a way.  It is still m0n0wall, and all licenses remain intact. 
 We re-brand it, but in no way take credit.  We just sell the hardware 
with service and support.  (Also a few other changes, like change the 
default config to the nics in the box, not sis0 and sis1) One guy 
looked and said, "Hey I can get that free!"  We said, "Of course.  The 
web site is..."  After looking at it, and the forums, and seeing my 
name, he called us back. :-)  A few other vendors on here also sell 
m0n0 systems.  The key is not trying to hide what it is.  Installing a 
"solution" is a lot of work.  Many people are willing to pay for that. 
 More are willing to pay for a phone number they can call.  There is 
enough money to be made honestly.
