I really, really dislike the notion that any company, in the selfishly sheer pursuit of profits, should be able to dictate to anyone what that person should be able to do, giving that it's within the limits of the law. Not allowing one to view many sites ISN'T within the moral control of any company, as long as you don't violate laws in doing it. Telling me that I should respect some idiot being able to tell me what I should or should not do with my own personal equipment (again, as long as you stay legal) is is the worst sort of moral cowardice. If you look at what Adobe is doing, they're making it obviously clear that they don't care about you using their tools, they only don't want you to use the operating system of your choice. And you want me to respect that, right? Sheesh! Why is it you use FreeBSD? Isn't it obviously clear that MicroSoft doesn't want you to? As long as you stay within the letter of the law, don't be so pusillanimous as to allow *any* company to dictate your free speech. As long as you stay within the law, then Free Speech is precisely what this all comes down to, and my rights to use whatever operating system I care to. Same as it's Adobe's right to refuse to support such a choice, which I agree with. But they can't tell me what I can do on my own. If I misunderstood you, above, then I apologize, but if I correctly read your meaning, then I'm sure my personal rights are important enough to me, to stay the course here. -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.9 (FreeBSD) Comment: Using GnuPG with Mozilla - http://enigmail.mozdev.org iEYEARECAAYFAkl99qEACgkQz62J6PPcoOkO4wCfZjUdhbszESNHXKrdM8JvxbSS we0An2zAvnI/0cNM4cxTMrH8Zh/qxkUz =Unze -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
