So the fact that Redhat pays people to develop GPL'd and LGPL'd software full
time is utterly meaningless?  Okay, so what you said..  "Much of what they
distribute we consider non-free."  What percentage constitutes "much"? 30%?
40%? Can you point me to a list showing that over 25% of the software
distributed by RH would qualify as non-free in debian?  Let's just count the
_main_ installation CD for RH5.2, if you include the other disks, you might as
well include non-free and contrib as part of the Debian.

Meaningless RH bashing makes me ill.
