Not me. I fancy more than one devious individual (e.g. Anonymous) might deal with the website of any such offering. Nevertheless, what you suggest is attempted. Encryption is available in library form on most boxes, but it is really an uphill struggle.
Consider, for example,there is the legal issue of the all pervasive GPL to be got around. People who make money from OSS software do it at the support services end. And IME most programs that sell for $300 for a pc and $1000 on a Mac will not sell for $300 on linux, or near it. Far better to structure around cheap/free software and support services (like Red Hat), or to provide a version that runs smoothly under wine.
