Well, than you and Lefty simply have a different pov and goal. I'm more or less on lefty's side here, as I think Free Software is important for the world - to help poorer people, defeat evil companies and protect free speech. For that, FOSS needs to be as big as possible, preferably everywhere. So I'm less and less supportive of the FSF and more and more on the side of the FSFE which is far more practical.

If you just want to hack with some friends on cool stuff and have fun, yes, you're just fine where you are with FOSS and the FSF. If you want to move it forward because you believe it is *important* for the world, FSF is doing you a dis-favor.
