Sabayon and Ubuntu are heading down the road of enraging GNU and the FSF.
They want liberty for themselves, at the expense of principles and Freedom
of others. Some might even go further compare it to Novell's selfish and
exclusive engagement. Still, being more pragmatic, they could help GNU/Linux
get a decent market share. Then, handware vendors will have to comply and
supply the code. People's opinions can be easily transformed.
