I've never understood this attitude. These are our rights,
and we'll fight for them even when we're over-powered and when it
looks like we're losing.
Our privacy is being eroded by Google with the help of Mozilla.
Google should stop that, but I have low expectations from Google,
they're not part of our community. Mozilla should stop that. Until
they do, we should not trust them as a source of free software. We
should use builds of Firefox that come from people we trust - be it
Debian, gNewSense, GNU, etc.
It's sad to see that Ubuntu cannot be added to the list of software
providers we can trust.
