I find it puzzling that some still cling to the idea/belief/lie that only non-free software can be good or that one must run non-free software to get things done. Some say it’s all about the applications and assume only non-free applications can work for people and determine their fate. It’s not so. We see many examples of people using FLOSS applications and operating systems with satisfaction.
For example, Chrome web browser has now displaced IE (which gets a free ride on Wintel) by some measures and Chrome plus FireFox makes a huge share of widely used applications, web browsers. Clearly FLOSS can offer people what they want because people usualy had to choose that option.
Some think Google’s Chrome browser is non-free software but it’s not: LICENCE. It has a BSD-style licence.
Even NetApplications, which is biased to use in business, shows a huge share for FLOSS browsers:
I recommend people use Debian GNU/Linux, an operating system, a huge set of applications and a package manager that makes it easy to manage one machine or thousands.
