Slack

People is discussing two completely different focuses:
Freedom and Gratuity.

These kind of services (they are services, not software products)
gratuity is ever incompatible with freedom (considering personal data as
a monetary value to trade with).

I prefer GNU/Linux (including Ubuntu and Gnome) than Windows or MacOS
because of freedom matter, including better control over my contacts, my
documents and logs, my localization, preferences, activities, etc.

Services with AGPL licenses concern this matter too.
