It's quite simple to get it - people bother with Ubuntu and Free
Software, because they want freedom, and that is their definition of

If Adobe wants to collaborate with Canonical, Adobe must make their
software Free. If Adobe makes non-free software, Canonical won't
collaborate with Adobe.

The website http://www.gnu.org explains pretty well why software
should be free. If it doesn't convince you, then use whatever tickles
your fancy.
