GNU/Linux Is Important After All

RMS is one of those people with whom I’m often in complete agreement – in theory. I just have trouble putting his ideas into practice. For example, RMS says I should always use free software, never anything proprietary. Honestly, I’d like to do just that, but I have a bank that requires I run some of their crapware on Windows if I want to stay PCI compliant. Indeed, if I had the strengths of my convictions, I’d tell the bank where to shove their proprietary junk – but I like to eat and homelessness doesn’t look like an attractive option at this stage in my life.
