Very well said Alex. I'm sorry but this is where my heart is. If its
not free, I just don't care. I will do everything I can so that the
closed product is not important to me. Why give someone the not free
alternative when I just don't care about the product and whatever
reasons the company has for wanting it to remain closed ? I want the
product open or I don't want it at all.
