Not to beat this to death, but a large number of Debian packages
contain code that was developed by people who work for companies that
produce non-free software. Among them:
anything we got from Red Hat (they own Cygnus, which does non-free stuff)
Need I go on?
Yes, it's a shame Lindows.com hosts things on non-free servers. My
general reaction to that is that if they're dumb enough to run IIS and
pay for it, that's on them, not us.
