Yeh, but only if they understand

Yeh, but only if they understand the implications of free software. It is not easy getting people to understand why software should be free - that assumes that they even understand the meaning of free software.

I confess that it has taken me time to understand the rhetoric of free software, and it has taken me more time to understand why non-free is evil. After a few months of living in a mostly free software environment, I came to the conclusion that the user should have the right to be in complete control their own hardware. This is impossible to do with non-free software. Since the situation for us (free software activists) is still less than adequate, I have made the decision to be an activist for free software.
