OMG! It's, like, yesterday.
Seriously. In 1998 I got bored of working in Europe and moved to Canada. It's literally yesterday for me.

It can and will be cracked if it's any good, and quickly.
People that aren't going to buy your software and that are going to use it illegally are going to do it anyway. Open source or not. The only thing you get with binary only releases is the illusion that you're stopping people from using it without paying you.
I did a bit of thinking and I believe that maybe 0.5% of all the software I've ever designed or wrote is closed source.
All the software I release now, in my piddly spare time, is under the MIT license.
Sorry, were you saying something about people here understanding or not understanding something?
