I'll probably do all of them :). Depending on the app. ie. an IM program will be free, but probably closed source, where as my GravityRinger will be free and open.

I have applications will which be free and mostly open-source such as Amazed. I am also working on more advanced titles which will cost a small fee ie $1.

Very cheap I think is the best.
If its something simple then free, closed source is a choice of the author.
I like very cheap if the game/app is good enough. $5 is too much I think, let alone $8.
I plan on charging $1 for my game. Should be fun.

What about a free 'lite' version (possibly with advertisements) and a paid 'full' app?

free software sometime don't have support, if there're any error we can solve them. So i think use fee ware will have more support.

That's the way I plan it, too ... or sth like a free first version, and later a (very much) improved version for a little price.
So if people like the free version they'll be happy if there's a sequel/big update and they might pay :)

As i' m a Linux user and a C, C++ and Java developer I love GNU, then my apps will be free and open-source.

I think I'll do my first app open source, but still costing money in the market (so people can download the source and build it themselves for free if they want).

I would want a lil bit of money, I doubt my code will be either well commented or clean enough

I would like to profit from my work.

I also like to contribute to the community when I can as well as open source, but ya gotta put food on the table first.

I feel that I deserve some credit for what I develop and most of my application will cost $1 - at most $2.50. Don't want to overcharge the user but a few bucks can get me a 24-pack of beer and pizza which should give me the "fuel" I need to code apps.
