My idea of freedom is having the choice of software that is free and that which is not and choosing what you want to run. If you want to run only free software, that's fine, if you want to run only commercial sofware, that's fine too. If you want to run both, that's cool. That is more free than what he's saying. The freedom to run non free software!

This is precisely the issue I take with his idiotic sentiments. Stallman isn't remotely interested in freedom for you, me or anyone else. He's interested in pushing his own personal version of freedom. That's exactly why he's trying to actively get people to censor mention of "nonfree" games on linux.

Trying to hide alternative options from people and doing so under the guise of giving them more freedom is one of the most idiotic things I've seen argued in a long, long time.
