Concentrate on a properly defined target group of users.

A nice example is Fervent Software with " go!" - basically a Linux distribution concentrating on hobby, and semi-professional musicians by bundleling Jack, Rosegarden, Ardour, and other nice packages.

Uhm, and readers may like to read the second part of the article, too.

In a store is probably where you would sell it, either the store being online or at a location!

It's probably most practicle to sell support, rather than the actual product,,,
