[Now see what you got me doing]
(ohh dear this got me started)
opera is not free as in freedom
(show me the source)
compiz depends on GLX which is almost free but is not
It has a withdraw clause in it which is being removed, the last dev who
signed up to it is being approached.
firefox is not free software cos it suggests non free software though
its extensions, some of which are proprietary, and the free software
definition does not permit the software to "suggest non free software"
Reasons we could never agree:
Debian Free Software Guidelines (DFSG) were not used in this case
Ubuntu Free to redistribute definition was not used in this case
Free Software Foundation definition was used in this case
need I go on, happy morning to you too ;-)
