"Free software is an *increase* in freedom above the default."
Yeah, and a huge decrease in usability and functionality. How's the Hurd treating you? I assume you're running LinuxBIOS and have the source code and toolchains for the firmware on all the devices you're using. Do you have any time left over for getting work done?
In other words, "free" is not black and white like you seem to imply. I do not share your definition because, frankly, it doesn't sound very free to me. It seems to have a lot of restrictions doesn't it?
