    @neimzr4luzerz from Stallman's comments there, it seems the # issue is basically the same as the # issue, nonfree repos

    @jookia but I think the # / # working on # is a good path forward to a world where Debian doesn't need nonfree repos

    @jookia frankly I agree that the # position on # is maybe too strong now. But I do like that there's *someone* sets the bar high

    @davidpgil I just think it's ironic that despite # having *exactly* the same goals as #, MS (of all players) endorses them first ;)

    @luke Non-free drivers seemed an acceptable compromise to support old hardware; # seemed the last proprietary hold-out in a war we'd won… Then # launched their non-free app store, I went back to install # on recent hardware and… #! I thought we fixed this!

    @luke As an old-time # user, at least, I was happily handing out # CDs, given that # was insisting "Ubuntu _is_ Debian", and # was on board.

    @luke Hate the bloody things. In dial-up days I had an old 286 under a desk as modem/router. Kept running out of disk space, though. #'s packages.tgz file was larger than the software running on it.

    @strypey I liked the idea of doing my handheld computing on # in a chroot, and treating the Host OS as hostile territory owned by the phone company, but also gave up at the not-listed-as-supported hurdle. https://github.com/guardianproject/lildebi/wiki

    Discarded the idea of running # on my phone as impractical. Instead disabling/replacing pre-loaded crapware one component at a time. Even the MIT/Apache-licensed bits. If there's a chance #, #, or # have touched it, I don't want it. Unclean! Unclean!

    Every few years I'm struck by this: # and # are awesome. Living the last 20 technology-centric years chained to non-free software is just unimaginable. Thank you #, #, #, and other freedom-enhancing acronyms. http://ur1.ca/304w0

Debian is a operating system (OS) for computers. Debian uses Linux, and for user space the GNU Project; thus the name GNU/Linux. Debian was created in 1994 and the current version is 6.0.
