Re: How to sell linux tools?



Suppose Lakshmi is going to write ext3 or file-system related tools. Unless your software is really good and urgently needed by some small business groups, it's hard to sell linux software for money. When using choose, it means everything is freely available. I'd show m 0.02 here, hope to be helpful:

1, Have a Try with SaaS. Share your programming experience with some startups, and serve as an consultant.

2, Looking for freelance jobs on oDesk, eLance, there are some developing positions, and you can serve as a dedicated programmer as what you did.

3, Start your own opensource project if you know the linux market quite well.(I know that recovering data from a failed RAID or disk is a good market)

All the best,
Joseph
