I'm fed up with the tux500 thread and did not want to get involved, but
I really take exception to this. We promote Linux and FOSS to _all_, not
just those who code, and certainly not only those who pay. We want
people using proprietary systems to consider becoming Linux users, and
But if there is a narrower definition of freeloader in play here, namely
those who have chosen not to support tux500, then I am definitely a
freeloader and proud of it!
