No doubt about it.  Bernard Shaw wasn't a "reasonable" man himself.  But he
wasn't criticizing reasonable men, either.  We all have some degree of
admiration for the outlaw, but it would be a hell of a world where everyone
was an outlaw.

I wholeheartedly support those who produce & promote Free software, but I'll
be damned if I'm going to criticize anybody for using non-Free software. 
Software is worth what you pay for it.  If it costs you _nothing_, that's
probably what it's worth (and no, I'm not talking free-as-in-beer).
