Of course we should load Free software onto those devices. Until a Free software load for a given device exists, however, is it better to tell people "your device won't work" (in which case they'll likely come back and say "this free software stuff sounds like a real 'you get what you pay for' case", keep using Windows, and quite possibly generate negative PR for Linux among their friends) or "your device will work if you use this firmware blob"?
