False. We have nothing against people running non-free software on
their machines, and we explicitly pledge to support those people.

What we should not do is distribute the non-free firmware in the
archive where we promise not to distribute non-free software.

Henning Makholm                   "The great secret, known to internists and
                         learned early in marriage by internists' wives, but
               still hidden from the general public, is that most things get
         better by themselves. Most things, in fact, are better by morning."
