Software freedom is a means to furthering our vision of providing
technology to all, regardless of means, physical and technical
capability or culture. This is why the GNOME project has always been
concerned about design, usability, internationalisation and
localisation, accessibility, and as you point out, user freedom.

Freedom is not useful unless people have the means to benefit from it.
