Those who "want to run only Free Software" are a minority. And even they occasionally need to get some work done which requires non-free tools.
BTW: I suppose you don't use a computer with non-free BIOS. Likewise a phone with a non-free GSM stack. Or a disk controller that uses proprietary firmware (such as the one in most DOKs).
