For BO specifically...? I know nothing of the business aspect of Solyd. From the tone of the preceding posts it doesn't sound as if any of the downloaders of BO were actually serious, or have maintained contact, but rather just the curious, or those who downloaded the wrong ISO by mistake...?
If the threat of discontinuing BO hasn't brought anyone out of the woodwork screaming, "Oh No!" then maybe not to continue... But then again, maybe BO hasn't been sufficiently marketed and hasn't had a fair chance to get off the ground.
BO is definitely geared toward businesses with more than just a few employees. Maybe "intermediate" isn't the right word either, but it's definitely for larger concerns than we appear to have here in the forum. Maybe I'm mistaken about all that though...
It's a hard thing to know. Like Sgt. Schultz, I know nothing.

It gives me an icky feeling too, smacks too much of hubris. If it were me, I would be too embarrassed to want anything like that. Some folks aren't bothered I suppose....
Not that I wouldn't be proud of having donated to a worthy and deserving project.
I'd just hate the idea of being too public about it afterwards, like bragging.
