This brings me nicely to a point I made in the gnu.misc.discuss list
and Ben’s blog, where is an acceptable place to use proprietary
software? My school <http://queenelizabeth.cumbria.sch.uk> (not
Manchester, I know) provides proprietary software for their OCR
physics course (Advancing Physics from the IOP), with no free
alternative. I have a choice of running Microsoft Windows in a virtual
machine (the software does not function in WINE) or getting all of my
work done whilst at school. Either way I will have to give up my
freedom in one way or another.
