I do wonder how many of the FOSS projects currently making money started out with that aim. Firefox was proprietary software which went free, and owes its advertising revenue to the fact that it was already successful. Wine was already a successful non-commercial project before a few of the developers were able to start making money from it.
My feeling is that most of the people making money are riding on the back of successful non-commercial projects (although if that helps those projects it need not be a bad thing).
