Personally, I don't care if it's full of FOSS, I am not all about free.
I am about what gets the job done, the best, costing me money or not.  I
was happy that Ubuntu implemented a paid software centre that would help
convince companies into bringing software to Linux.

It just so happens that I think the Mac OS X GUI is garbage, it's the
same reason I don't put Docky on my Debian and Ubuntu and Fedora
installs.  I'm not fond of the close, maximize and minimize being on the
left, not the right. DRM does no bother me, until I realise that I can't
use iTunes <<< on Linux.  I would much rather by something on iTunes and
watch it there rather than have to go to the store, by physical media to
rip it and then never touch the damn disk again, it's a waste of
plastic.  You shouldn't look too much into personal opinions.
