Well, it's an issue of educating people isn't it?  I'm sure 99% don't
know why they would want Free Software and of that I'd guess a large
percent wouldn't care once Freedom is explained to them.

People who have never used anything but a proprietary OS don't "see" the
freedoms they are missing.

Second, thanks for pointing out the BSD drivers.  Are they drop in
replacements for the firmware?
