Re: Question to GNOME Foundation Board candidates

If that means that we don't offer a place to download nonfree
applications, that's not a flaw, that's a moral superiority!
It's part of respecting users' freedom.

Every GNU/Linux distro offers a system for installing packages.  And,
of course, you can install programs from elsewhere or build them from
source.  This way is the ethical way, because it gives users control
over what versions they run.

So let's turn those attacks around!  Let's remind people that the
distros' package systems are right way to distribute applications and
GNOME works with those package systems.
