They should do...
I use Gobuntu on a day to day basis!

But it's not good enough really. In fact it's not good enough for either 
camp as I've tried to compromise on this issue using it.

I'm well aware that gobuntu/ubuntuwith "free software only" contains 
non-free software, specifically in ubuntu-linux-modules-generic in main 
or something. There's a bug filed somewhere.

Having said that my desktop runs Gobuntu, my laptop runs gNewSense and 
I'm looking at moving my desktop that way, but it's non-trivial...

Anyway, thanks for the thought,

Nice Gong-a-thon talk at LRL by the way :)
