You still have to press CDs and print the manuals 
and set up a distribution channel.  
If the assessments are correct that Mac OS X users will buy it only

One intermediate solution could be that the proprietary version is
be released as Free Software within a fixed time period.
Let's say four month. This is at least a bit better.
