RE: My quite ordinary comment about Re: GR to remove non-free...

Hmmmm - I elected debian after using slackware for four+ years, because its 
what Pitr runs :)  http://www.userfriendly.org/

Seriously - I chose debian because it was recommended for servers.  I 
didn't want a distribution that needs wishy-washy X-based tools to deal 
with packages.  Does debian need a "x-based newbies" set of defaults?

   While that is probably true, I don't think that should be the basis for
Debian's mode of operation.  Debian needs new users and it needs to be
designed to appeal to new users while still maintaining the qualities that
separate it from the other GNU/Linux distributions.
