I care about the licensing of the software I use, not because of some philosophical principle, but because I got sick and tired of having the thumbscrews put on me by proprietary software companies.

The latest row over at Ubuntu about licensing shows that plenty of other people feel the same way. End users aren't licence agnostic; they know that the licensing of the products they use is important.

Concerns over licensing are not the preserve of a few whacko freetards, but of ordinary users. Ubuntu is, after all, one of the most popular and least techie Linux distributions.
