closing the previous one down, or onto a different field itself like
beekeeping or horticulture,
What abt the users who are stuck with your software and don't have enough
money to upgrade to a different software? Atleast if it were OSS then
else can continue development on your software once you have moved to
As long as you were in the business you were able to earn and give service
Once you are out someone else can continue the good work.
So, if I write software SO GOOD that it doesn't need support at all,
Replacement of damaged CD's?
New hardware(there will always be new hardware)?
Support does not mean just helping to install and use the software.
One more thing, no 'Business Model' works if the company isn't a 'Going
Concern', ie, if
it is known that it is short-lived. In other words, you can't technically
apply the term
'Business Model' if you already plan to close down after writing the "SO
GOOD" super cool
