Um, OpenBSD is the only common OS that is actively against blobs. See http://www.openbsd.org/lyrics.html#39 We're on the same side here. That is good. (gNewSense and Ututo are also against blobs.) Sir, it was brought up that the [GNU/]linux distributions you do suggest do often include in their ports systems non-free software. See e.g. http://marc.info/?l=openbsd-misc&m=119726055819074&w=2 What do you say to that? Was that a lie or a mistake? What they have told me is that they do not. I will send mail to try to fetch the page at that URL and see what you are talking about.
