I can understand that, however I have no problem with commercial apps. I
like the fact that I have a *choice*. My system runs a range of apps
from GNU to commercial. I use Linux because I like it and it is good. If
it cost me money I would still be using it!

I don't see why a commercial app can't be *the* best app - the
commercial model is just one way of producing and distributing software,
it surely has little bearing on how good the app is.
