I thought it would be relevant to add that a book on Ubuntu was published
under a month ago. When a book on Open Source software/project is published,
it indicated that it has gone mainstream. More recent books: Drupal,
WordPress, phpBB (on building on-line communities). This may be another
source of revenue, alongside support. That said, literature can be said to
be a form of support.
