My time-limited model makes sure all source is made open eventually, once the developers have been paid for their work.

This deceptive hybrid model (based I my understanding of it per the description above) is really offensive to those of us who understand the concept of open-source, and the benefits that flow from it.

You (not you personally - I mean the person implementing such a hybrid model) lure people in with free open source, then, when something is found to be wrong with it, you make them wait for the fix.. until.. .. .. your ransom has been paid.

Utterly offensive (the model that is).

Open source means just that ... Open source - It's turtles all the way down.

Ransom-ware is something very different.

Except it's none of those things, as you yourself grasp that it's a "hybrid model," ie not purely open source. So it cannot be deceptive, offensive, or ransom-ware, since it's perfectly clear that it's its own thing. And that mixed model is pretty much the way all software is built these days, including the linux kernel as mentioned earlier in this thread, so you are clearly using such mixed software too, just by the fact that you posted in this thread.

So given that all your claims are easily logically proven to be nonsense, there's no point in going any further.
