I am actually glad. The move to open source will help a lot of people in a lot of ways, and this hopefully will be a deal breaker for those who will finally make the move. I realize it's not that big of a deal to just uncheck all the bullshit that comes in the setup process, but not everyone is wise enough to do so, which will add the reported adware/spyware which no one wants. I still use a lot of software that is paid for or free with strings attached, but I'm gradually making a move away from it. It's amazing how well open source can do stuff for free, often much better than the retail competition.

Don't forget to live before you die.
