Not back-doored by the NSA: for all 99% of people know, Linux is back-doored by the NSA to high heaven.

I would almost agree, that any language is as good as any other. With a few exceptions, like "whitespace" which isn't meant to be a practical language anyway.
You may be right if you talk within one group of languages like e.g. procedural. But there is quite a difference between groups: (procedural, functional, logic), (strict, lazy), (pure, with side effects), (dynamically, or statically typed, or untyped), (static, lexical, dynamic scoping).
No, programming languages are not equal to each other. They can be very different. But I agree that tools are important.
we call them morons, why would one cripple their computer, a suposed tool to get things done to hold them selves higher in the morality of a fucking driver is beyond me, I have shit to get done, not be political with my tools.
Or they are willing to suffer a bit now in an attempt to create a new market segment for open drivers. You could call them investors instead of morons. Also there are issues with reporting bugs when your kernel is tainted. This can be critical for some people. Maybe you can try to educate yourself about their motivation before calling them "morons".
I am not sure you could still buy a 4:3 monitor any more.

And then the data link breaks or gets jammed (or even hacked?) by a terrorist. Especially when electrical systems start failing, the connection will be lost.
Then open big parachutes and let the plane land with them (wherever it is currently located). Then send rescue to pick up passengers
