Choosing between non-Free systems is choice, but it's not freedom.
Nice aphorism. And now you have specifically relegated linux to that category, and castigated Linus for having the temerity to disagree with you.
At the end of the road to ideological purity down which you are headed, there will be no useful systems left that are sufficiently pure to meet your peculiar definition of "free". At that point freedom will be just another word for nothing left to choose*. I hope you are happy when you reach that dead end, but I shall not join you there.
*which is not quite the way Dylan said it, but makes at least as much sense :-)
