    The FSF is based on the belief that Freedom is more important than things
    like design and usability, and that's not going to have much impact on
    people who just want the latest well designed, very usable, shiny trinket.


    It's the linux mentality. Having "source code" is more important than a
    well designed and very usable product.

    It's just a smoke screen to make up for the massive stability problems
    people are having with Ubuntu and Fedora.

    The truth is people could care less about having the source code.
    Most don't even know what it is!

    People want quality programs, systems that interact well with what they are
    most likely using at their job and they want to be able to get help if they
    need it without tracking down some Linux geek.

    The FSF shows it's total ignorance of the market place here so it's no
    wonder Linux is still sitting at 0.6 percent of the desktop market share
    even after 15 years!

    Go Linux!
    Advertise that source code and see how many switch from Windows!
