Do you value "Free" or "Freedom"?

Yesterday, I helped 2 people start on their road to Freedom. It took me all day. He is a power user and some programs like Outlook lock your information in so that exporting contacts and other info can become strenuous. Sure he needed some proprietary software, but the road to justice is long.
Today RIM went down 25% and I could help but think how open software now has the green light thanks to Google's Android. A smart phone is only as good as it's software and most application developers are switching from the iphone and RIM to the Android because of how bad Apple is treating them. Will we soon see a day when the Lords of software become extinct? The next step is to remove proprietary codecs on websites so everyone can enjoy the websites. Come on let Firefox browsers access your info.
