Screw non-free.

The Social Contract  starts "Debian will remain 100% Free Software".

Non-free has to go. It has only been a matter of time and it isn't going to 
get any less painful by waiting.

CDs and other physical mediums are a dying form of distribution. Wired 
connections are the future. If we don't distribute non-free on CD, then why 
should we distribute it by wire?

Are we strong enough to make it stick? Will we lose market share? Maybe. If 
that scares us maybe we should work harder on building market share. Let's 
remember, though, that Debian didn't get to be the fastest growing Linux 
distribution by compromising its moral code.

If we can't stand and fight, then no one can. Keep the future Free. Send the 
message loud and clear. No non-free in Debian.
