He'd probably answer that ubuntu is more free than windows, and that
that's therefore a good thing.

But to be perfectly blunt, I don't give a rat's ass what RMS thinks. I'm
not a member of the Church of Free Software, nor do I want to be. Debian
is the club I'm a member of, and that's more than enough for me.

Ah, well, I think you misunderstood me here. What I meant is that ubuntu
is gaining ground on things like Windows and MacOS. I didn't mean to
refer to non-free software packaged with ubuntu, nor to non-free
producers who support ubuntu.

Copyshops should do vouchers. So that next time some bureaucracy requires you
to mail a form in triplicate, you can mail it just once, add a voucher, and
save on postage.
