It occurs to me that I should probably clarify a few issues.
In no particular order:
I am certainly not *opposed* to 100% free distros. I think they're great. But at the same time, I do not oppose 99% free distros, either. Both have their parts to play.
I do support Ubuntu's policy of warning the user about the installation of nonfree software and letting them make a decision.
My laptop uses 100% OSS software. My desktop is not quite 100%. I greatly enjoy the Quake and Doom series of games, not all of which are OSS.
I don't care for Linspire's and Xandros' policy of just ignoring the issue, and would not recommend them to new users.
