hmm I think it is a bad idea to suggest the use of non free software. and it would seem hypocrite: we are doing this distribution as a service, because we want to give users the freedom in their software, so there is no point in suggesting them what sort of manacles to wear.

OH! Now I understand what you are saying. I thought
you meant we should have a list of non-free software
so a user could easily find them if they wanted to add
those packages.

Well it is a bit brazen, and a bit "in your face" but
I certainly like the idea.
