> Can you explain how you have greater freedom when you have less software to choose from?
The amount of software choice has no bearing on the amount of freedom you have personally.
When you say 'freedom' in your other post what you really are saying is: "I want people to do a bunch of work to make what I want to do trivially easy'. This is NOT freedom. This is a overarching sense of self-entitlement.
I can fully understand your desire to use the latest version of flash in your preferred browser, but guess what: Flash is a closed source pile of shit and if you want to use it you have to play by Adobe's rules because of copyright laws. If you want real freedom then petition the government to get rid of IP laws, not bitch about the fact that you have to use Chrome to get the newest version of flash.
