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.
