While there are plenty of reasons why non-proprietry software is a good
thing, I think 'proprietry software is the enemy' is a bit melodramatic.
Quite frankly, if no-one was paying for the software we have today, then
there would be no great incentive in companies to make better software. We'd
end up with a world full of linux applications, each with it's own
non-standard interface, and each programmer catering to their' own biases &
subjective ideals. Such a road is great for programmers and computer
experts, and terrible for people who don't have advanced computing skills
(Read 'most of the world').
My 3 off-topic cents.
