That's perfectly correct, we _are_ a commercial vendor, but we
sell a service - access to a repository of directly runnable software
and to a computing environment based on the repository.
We maintain the software and this is the work we want to be paid for.

The Coda installers are not proprietary in any sense.
They are a result of several years of our experience with active Coda usage
and with many installations.
They are free to use, distribute and modify.

We forget this.

Hope you enjoy Coda.
