    Do I agree that for the science of it, open source is superior? Yes. Do I think it makes for better products? In itself, yes. There are other factors, though. I'd happily open source REAPER if we could still run it as a business similar to the way we do now, but unfortunately I can't come up with any models to make that happen.

    What about releasing two versions, one that is entirely open source and free of proprietary components, and one that is the "full" version, proprietary parts included. Similar to how Google has Chromium and Chrome.
