And free software above the needs of our users neither. 

And exactly this is what it is all about: find a way to satisfy BOTH 
priorities, not just one. As long as there is no working alternative to 
shipping firmwares in main, removing them is simply wrong. working 
together with upstream and the vendors to fix the issue is what we 
should do, not ripping the blobs aout of the kernel and forgetting 
about their existence. 

Guess which Distribution users who "made a poor buying choice" will not
use again.
