Hibernate deal opens way to make open source pay

The Australian-led Hibernate free software project has attracted financial backing from a US commercial vendor, in exchange for premium customer

King says selling his expert knowledge of the project he founded 21/2 years ago, will help fund the project's ongoing development.
