We should probably be careful at this point though, as we are getting
very close to what some people would consider a religious debate.
Some of us have different views of the Open Source and Free Software
movement(s). Some of us tend to become very rabid very quickly as
well.  :P

There are different definitions of freedom, and differing degrees of
freedom.   Some of us see the "freedom" presented in the form of the
GPL as the ultimate truth.  Others see it as the same sort of
"Freedom" that black American's were given right after the abolition
of slavery.  "You are free, now do what you are told."
