I use R almost everyday and I

I use R almost everyday and I like it.  I like the idea of encouraging companies to use R.  But I don't know how you can combine features of an open source software and those of a commercial software.  If something is commercial and people have to pay for it, then it won't be a feature of open source and people who use the open source won't be able to use it.  By the way, what's the price for RStat?
