        I tend to give more weight to the license of the software
 itself; which in this case is free; that the supposed intent of the
 users (there was the WEP cracker software recently introduced,
 despite people complaining it was a black hat only tool -- and
 countered by other people saying it can have security uses).

        I also found compelling the scenario that even if users used
 free software in conjunction with non-free data/drivers, there is
 potential for free data/drivers to be created, and then users shall
 find a tested, well known, free software suite ready to go the rest
 of the way.  Let not perfect be the enemy of the good.
