I wish we could keep them too - if only they were free. And
while everything is not black or white, it does not imply either that
nothing is. (I'm trying to determine if the information content in
your sentence above is non-null).
I would also like to have a whole bunch of stuff in Debian, if
only it were free --- but this liking is not enough to sacrifice the
principles of freedom of software.
