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.
