consider a licensing arrangement with other, larger vendors - can your
product be used in an OEM setting, augmenting or forming the basis for
new value-added products?
Freeware is not all it's cracked up to be - I am not sure I would worry

mean to suggest that software produced in a research environment is all bad,
only that maintenance and documentation often suffer; serious clients are
prepared to pay for this.
