Generally I have little sympathy here - you have chosen to use a
proprietary operating system and you want to make money from selling a
proprietary application, so just factor in the cost of re-inventing the
wheel and hire a developer to do it for you.

>From the technical side, depending on what operations you need from GEOS
and what the required bandwidth between GEOS and your application is, I
could envisage a solution where you write a "GEOS daemon" that
statically links to the library and is released openly, supporting a
number of GEOS operations through simple network calls; and then you
make your application talk to that daemon like it is discussed here
or here
