They have several initiatives for making money.

- "Cloud" offering where people can store their stuff and pay for it.

- Enterprise Cloud offering.

- Support for enterprise clients (both desktop and servers)

- Partnerships (e.g. inclusion of proprietary packages in special
repositories)

- Certification for hardware

- Training.

Now, how successful is any of the above? One can only guess.
