The culture of freedom lies in the details

Here is an interesting blog post by Bradley Kuhn about Ubuntu, Debian, and (warning: my interpretation ahead) the culture of freedom.

While reading it, I had kinda moment of truth, because just yesterday I was musing with Mehdi and Lucas on the fact that Debian is basically the only remaining distribution among the mainstream ones (if that means something) that is free from the ground up, including its infrastructure. We "just" seek hardware via donations and then we run, thanks to the amazing work of DSA, our own free infrastructure on top of it.

Let's cherish this value!

Thanks to Roberto Di Cosmo for the pointer to Bradley's post.

Update: there's a thread on the ubuntu-devel mailing list about Bradley's post.
