I've been coming to Slashdot for a while and never made an account, but I had to create an account just to respond to you. What you just described is the complete opposite. Only being allowed to run the software they allow you to? That's less freedom than any other OS, including Windows. Users should be allowed to install whatever they want, it's their CHOICE they should have the FREEDOM to do what they want with their system, and that's what it's really about. Many Linux users use proprietary software. I have a couple proprietary games installed on my computer, including Doom 3, Quake 4, and Unreal Tournament 2004.
