The world is full of uncompromising characters, but few of them have been as useful to humanity as RMS. I'm not asking you to like RMS, just refrain from the usual "what an uncompromising, unpleasant fellow" rhetoric that distracts from the conversation.
Back to the conversation. I don't think RMS has ever told any body "You CANNOT use non-free software." Rather, his position is that using non-free software is immoral. As such, when you have no free software to choose from, make the least immoral choice.
