I already replied to your first letter: 

And this isn’t a case of “because the license allows it”. TextMate 
has always been commercial software and recently, I released the source 
under a license that I picked myself, and of course I picked a license 
that wouldn’t disallow something that I was already doing.

I said plenty of proof of free != open — just google it!

For indie software being sold but with the source available, both 
Limechat and Colloquy are in the iOS app store, but started as open 
source projects. Growl is in the Mac app store, but also has the source 
availble. QuickCursor I think is now pulled from the Mac app store, but 
is also on GitHub, I know there are more, but really, do your own 
research if you need this info!
