I find this view rather short sighted. I thought our being here as the LDP
is to document Linux and provide information to people to let them use it.
I don't think it's in our "charter" to dictate to people what they should use.
We should provide a higher emphasis on free software, but denying documentation
about non-free software is shooting the Linux community in the foot.
Sometimes, non-free software is the answer that is required. It's not a failing
of the free software community, it's just the way it is. MySQL isn't Oracle,
Koffice isn't StarOffice, and there isn't a bit of free software out there
