Of course it is helpful to write free software that implements some
useful features found elsewhere.

Though for that, we can't steer users to review non-free software as
that means to let them give up on their freedom.

Many features may be discussed without running non-free sofware. And
in same cases one has to run non-free software to write free software.

I find it unfortunate that some people create proprietary software
that uses Org files.

However, IMHO and according to principles of free software, such as
not to steer users towards non-free software, then no links to
proprietary software shall be added from Org website pages, as Org is
part of Emacs which is part of GNU fully free operating system
