It is much the best solution to the problem you keep expounding. You clearly
dislike Debian intensely, so it is daft to keep using it. Windows would give
you everything you say you want: up to date hardware support and proprietary
drivers. And no FLOSS dead ends.
Debian has decided to go back to its roots. Since you so profoundly disagree
with the policy, stop using Debian. The developers are volunteers. They can
do what they want to do. You could always pay someone to develop a fork for
you, or develop it for yourself. There are plenty of distros with different
policies - and there is Windows. And OSX, of course.
Debian is what it is. Most of us like it, which is why we use it. If you
don't like it, don't use it.
