Thanks for your  words.  I also think that  outcasting non-free is not
the way to go.  Even if we would all like to see more free software, I
believe we  must also be tolerant  to non-free.  The better  is not to
kick out non-free but to say:  here you have non-free if you want, but
look here,  you have  a so much  better free software...!   The choice
will then be obvious -- no need to use any force...
