Hello Leeteqxv, if I understood you correct, what your clientele want's to have is constant improvements for Qubes OS. They don't want to compile or test things.
This is a subscription based model, where people pay the Qubes OS team for their ongoing work rather than for an existing product. Furthermore, I agree with you "memberships-based support services (premium communities) is a good business model for" Qubes OS. However, I think that testing new features and introducing new features can be done together with the open source community and Qubes OS could offer a LTS version for money. LTS version could focus on guaranteeing backports and fixes for specific LTS version over a period of 3 or more years, whereas the community support will only be offered for a year or till the next version of Qubes OS appears. I think the Qubes OS team should focus on getting paid for their ongoing work rather than Qubes OS as a product and the only way to do this is to offer monthly or yearly subscriptions for customers and additionally support memberships for IT professionals (consultants, IT departments etc.). -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
