I didn't get a chance to see it, but someone who did, said that the
program was bad. Extremely bad. It linked FOSS to piracy, with much
FUD about that. FOSS people were a bunch of freeloaders.
I might be exaggerating, as I didn't see it, but it had much confusion
about the links between FOSS and pirated software.
Someone should counter it.
