Definitely. And the fact that there's no match for the non-free software
should direct our productivity towards creating such matches, not towards
political decisions that have no relation to the reality of the moment. I
was born in a communist country where everyone was "free" (not free") but
restricted by... political statements of many kinds. It was a "democracy"
whithout people having any influence on the govt's decisions. In a word,
nice facade with rotten backyard. I can't help this situation reminds me
those days...
