I understand the need to not give the users any posibility to use
non-free software by mistake, but I agree with hellekin. I choose what
to install and use, since freedom 0 is guaranteed to me by free
software. When I need/want to hack, reverse engineer, test, observe,
learn, understand why those abominations (called non-free and
proprietary software) exist and what they are trying to force to the
users throat, you name it, I don't need/want to be stripped of my
freedom 0 by free software.
Or maybe someone wants to decide in my place what should I do with my
computer, regardless of my freedom 0?
Freedom in obscurity is as bad as security by obscurity!
