    You are correct. My rule of thumb - do not work for a 'build open source and hope to get paid for support' model. It will take years to be profitable as support cost is too high (as we all have seen on Blind). Margins are too low so you have to have massive scale to build a viable business.

      Word. Also, see ride-sharing stocks. More better, no?

      There are no hopes for either Uber or Lyft IMHO

    Except that MongoDB, and Elasticsearch are couple of examples that have the same business model and have reached $6-8B valuation.

    You are right Amazon. Though they are still making big losses, and it's been 10 years since Mongo DB started. Not sure about Elastic.
