Flame away. I use a Debian-derived distro because it is reliable and
stable. I personally do not care for the Libre cause, even though I
recognize it's importance. In fact, if Debian were closed source and
the most expensive OS available I would probably still be happily
paying for it and using it. The freedom and free cost are just icing
on the cake for me.
Therefore, I have no problem with proprietary Flash, even though I
understand the problems that it causes. I wish that more proprietary
software, such as Solidworks and MS Office, were available for Debian
or Linux in general.
Thanks for asking!
