like technical support, manuals, accept donations, etc. All of which goes into paying developers to maintain the operating system and programs as well as handle basic operating expenses. In other words even though the software is given away for free they have other ways of getting money to maintain the software. A company has to do it, or they can't operate.

Did you consider making engine open source and selling technical support for it? Advanced developers usually don't need support, but they will be required to put back the code they developed using your engine, so there is a benefit. You can also sell a comercial license for those who want make comercial games. I myself started work on such engine and have done a lot of it. Engine was written in delphi. You can find topic about it on audiogames.net forum, there is list of implemented features and even working demo. However, currently project is frozen because i switched to c++ :-)
