Копирам „мнения“ на Столман:
Non-free software is available on the net, and people can find and install it. I think that is unethical, .....
Putting the non-free software in a separate folder or labeling it is not enough. That is what Debian does, and that's why I don't recommend Debian. Likewise, that's what Ubuntu does nowadays, which is why I don't recommend Ubuntu. Gobuntu does the same thing -- the non-free repositories are disabled by default, but a dialog box offersthe chance to enable them. So I don't recommend Gobuntu either.
The right thing to do is kick out the non-free softwre entirely. I tried for years to persuade Debian to do that, and eventually I gave up on them. I tried to talk with the Ubuntu developers about this, too, and did not succeed. All I can do is not recommend those distros.
I will ask the person who maintains the directory (free software directory) to remove Linux or else point to a free version of it.
What's really going on is that you are helping them use the non-free software, which grants it legitimacy. That is what I object to. (относно обънбсд проекта)
Ubuntu does many things that suggest installing non-free software. I did not know about this example, but I know of others which are worse. That is why I refuse to recommend Ubuntu.
Freedom means having control of your own life; "Freedom of choice" is a partly accurate and partly misleading way to describe that, and taking that expression too literally leads to mistaken conclusions. Thus, I say I advocate "freedom" -- not "freedom of choice".
Even giving the URLs has the effect of referring people to those non-free programs. It gives those non-free programs legitimacy, and thus contradicts the idea that "software should be free".
Do you believe that The Pirate Bay is guilty of copyright infringement? That is a legal question, not an ethical question. I do not know what the law of any given country would say about the Pirate Bay. You would need to ask a lawyer. Instead of that legal question, we could ask an ethical question: is The Pirate Bay's activity right or wrong? In general, I think people have a moral right to share copies of published works, so I see no reason to criticize the Pirate Bay in general. However, I would not recommend that as a place to look for software, both because some of the software might be non-free, and for security reasons.
