We're _not_ helping them by any means.  We're _not_ promoting non-free software

We're just being realistic in that in the next 2 years they [1] can benefit
_us_ by driving their existing userbase into our platform.

[1] and yes, "they" doesn't necessarily mean non-free.  It can be GPLed
    vendors too, and it's in fact very likely since these happens to be the
    same that also target i386-linux-gnu (think of Id software now).
