I've gotta agree with Joel here.
I have to wonder what kind of message Ubuntu, a distribution based on
Free software and that beats the "freedom" drum would send if they
began to use the same tactics that the companies who distribute non-free
I'd hope a "turn the other cheek due to our ethics" would be in play
here. The one thing I fear for Canonical / Ubuntu is that we become
what we dislike.
