You're kidding, right?  When was the last time you saw one the creator of 
ASP on a mailing list personally answering code questions?  

For what it's worth, I just left a 50,000 employee company that would not 
let me use PHP in production until I showed them the Zend suite of 
products.  When I asked for the money to buy their IDE and it arrived I 
was allowed to move my PHP code to production.  Same deal as Sun now 
charging for Star Office, in corporate eyes they now see a company making 
money from a product which will give the company the ability to enhance 
the product and most important provide support.

So, while we all may not be able to afford some of the tools that Zend is 
creating they continue to have a dedication to the open source community.  
I view it as the better Zend does, the more developers they can hire and 
the better all of the products will be including their contributions to
