i never said that this is something wrong. unethical from my POV, but
not wrong.

i see such people almost every day. "i bought android-based smartphone
'cause android is open source!" i still can't understand how buying
closed proprietary crap supports FOSS. and android is still proprietary
system with opened source, not FOSS.

Linux, by the way, is not a real FOSS for me. not until it will adopt
GPLv3, which will never happen.
