"Comfort Computing" - I like it, the original intention of computing power/automation is to relieve human from doing the grunge work. Today's interpretation is exactly the opposite - "Always connected" (so cliche...)

Anyway, as a developer, what is the "minimum expected return" for you to embark on such adventure? The experience aside, would you say, the business should at least generate enough cash (*profit*, after tax and all other cost) to buy a decent house? If not in prime location but at least USD 300k? For small packages USD 1k per license, you need 300 subscribers for that - which should already generated enough work load that you'd probably need at least 3-5 developers on your payroll, depending on how "hand free" your app is.

Sorry personally I think if money is sh*t there's no point, you might as well go Open Source
