Only Red Hat is directly commercial. Ubuntu and LibreOffice sell support, not the product, and Wine and OpenOffice have companies backing them up which sell products based on them, but with proprietary additions, and the open source products themselves are not commercial.

Sure :) I just stated that it is a "Commercial" project not a "Commercial" product.
Opensource projects can be "Commercial" projects in,at least, two different ways:
1)Selling the Product: Binary versions, aka source code perfectly compiled,on-demand, ready to be installed,sent packaged to home, plus manuals, etc...
2)Selling Services: Client Support, Tech, Certifications,related services, etc

Others:
3)Advertising: Placing advs in the product.
4)Data mining: Letting the company to record all your movements and use them for statistics(Android?)

And i could keep adding a couple more hehe...

Because my real work, I become somekind of a Business Model expert, mainly focused at Opensource Business Models. So if anyone is interested in details, we can share thoughts :)

Btw, Wine has a company backing it up, but really it become the other way around: Wine's devs created a company in order to backup the project called "CodeWeavers". Basically they are trying to find,and finding, a market niche in order to support WINE.
In the other hand, Transgaming, a company (ab)used from WINE code(from a NON_LGPL era) and they sell that closed source product.

I don't think so. Even when I do not care about sharing some data, it's considered "evil" by a lot of people. ReactOS is not popular enough to want that kind of advertising.
I think the way to go for ReactOS is selling support or something like that, if it is to be a commercial project.

I think the way to go for Android is selling support or something like that, if it is to be a big corporation.

Hmmm, for a start, Android is targeted to be embeded in mobile devices. Users doesn't really have much choices about that, you either use Windows Mobile, iOS or Android, and whichever you use, comes with the device. ReatOS, in the other hand, will probably be installed on demand.
Maybe it's few people. But it's the same kind of few people (geeks, mostly) who are to promote ReactOS.
