I gather he's in the "ship Debian with non-free firmware and
documentation" camp and fix it later. Of course the destination could
be 100% ideologically pure distro, in which case the opposite is true,
however I gathered from his overall tone and the fact that non-Free
software is sort of around Debian and RMS doesn't really like Debian
very much anyway (he likes that little distro the little country near
Spain puts out).
For my own personal tastes, I'd rather see an ideological purer distro
that ships later, but this is becaue I run Sid. I bet people who need
Stable want it Now.
