For the booking of tickets, (public system) car software, etc., we
have no choice. But for being connected together, we do:
- BBB (though you need the non-free flash player)
- Many SIP solutions (some with video)
Also, nobody here ever has proposed to *advocate* for the plane
and bus companies to use non-free software (unless you are... ^-^).
Oh, and if you know any airline using Debian, let us know! :)
