I guess it fits the genre ;). 04.08.11 Pablo Campis wrote, It’s great to have new software in USC, but I see that most of the software there are games. Why not add some productivity software too? I’m thinking in Softmaker Office (2008 is free now, 2010 is 60$), Zimbra, Nero Linux and Maya. Great to see improvements to USC, hope more quality software is added soon. Keep the gret job! 04.08.11 markig wrote, Why proprietary software? Do people that have build, contribute to the evolution, and use GNU/Linux because respects your freedom NEED proprietary games? There are plenty of Libre games for GNU/Linux, Canonical would have do a better job in creating something that will incentivate donations to Free software instead. The only fundamental goal and reason of existence of GNU/Linux is user’s freedom, not having it slaved just with some trick and light, as if he were so dumb to loose freedom for some game or “productivity software” like “nero linux” (never heard of K3B?). Do people gives so little value to freedom in software? 04.08.11 John Pugh wrote, Why discriminate against one or the other? There are many options for contributing free and open source software to Ubuntu and by the same token there needs to be a way to contribute non-free software, too. As you state, “the only fundamental goal and reason for existence of GNU/Linux is user’s freedom”. Should Canonical discriminate against the freedom to add and/or purchase “commercially licensed” software? Doesn’t that defeat the “fundamental goal and reason for existence of GNU/Linux”?
