Here is a more pertinent link:

It requires submitting a business plan according to the FAQ. This sounds 
like a traditional venture capital arrangement instead of just charity. 
I'm not sure if they would invest in open-source projects like OpenAFS.

Ok, this is confusing, a couple of articles say that free projects don't 
have to pay $99 to distribute apps on the iPhone, but Apple's web site 
says different:
    Standard Program $99
    The Standard Program is for developers who are creating free and 
commercial applications for iPhone
    and iPod touch.
