They don't make money on regular home consumers... They make them on selling high-end hardware kit to people looking for a tough server. They also have Linux/BSD/ etc... to deal with on that end. So if they can get more people to like it better than the comptetition, they'll sell you lots of software, support, and most importantly, hardware. They free version isn't to be used on systems with more than 8 processors...
