I love and often download the free-as-in-beer distros; I get broadband access as a perc from my job. I also support the FSF, and the EFF, and the CPSR with the money I save from the broadband and from having to buy ugly proprietary software. I try to be as generous as I can, since I am not a programmer and cannot contribute in that way.
The freedom is the part that matters, not the cost, and I always contribute way more than it would cost to buy some nasty trapware. I always urge others who can afford to to do the same.
Donations to the FSF work in great ways, and are as good a way to "buy software" as there is. I encourage all who can to become associate members, and to donate whatever else they can. It is *very* important.
