I'm possibly getting a little bit away from the original topic but
I've been wondering why it is that when you install Ubuntu there isn't
a "choice" that asks if you'd like to install the "completely free
version" (read: GNU friendly) like the current default install, or the
"Mostly free version" with non open binaries such as nvidia/ATI
drivers video codecs and other such software that, although are not
open they are legal to use?

Our OS who art in CPU, LINUX be thy name. Thy programs run, thy
syscalls done, In kernel as it is in user!
