What Freedom That Works Means To Me

Filed under
OSS

"Freedom That Works" is to me the sort of "Freedom as in what makes me feel cozy", not like "Freedom like in gNewNonsense".

"Free as in free beer" vs. "free as in free speech" are just childish terms no one should use: the beer is never free and it's not something to value that much anyway ("free sex" would be a better choice), and speech is even less free, no matter what your illusions are.

"Free as in something that works for me, and it's not immoral by any common sense, no matter some U.S. legislators believe it's illegal in the U.S." — this is what people really need.

Should you need more and should you like the windmills, join the FSF then.
