Wow, Add / Remove allowed me to install NonFreeSoftware from a third-party repo
with the latest Delta-H I. *knew* I shouldn't have gone there. :(
hate to say it but we could have told you so
(A) this is gnewsense not some other distro so their repos most likely
will bring non free things
(B) they suggest you don't randomly add repos
(C) you are on the gNS mailing list, therefore you should not be
suggesting non free software - that is why we have issues with a certain
browser, nothing to do with their trademark - and to make the point
clearer let me add --
They have issues with use calling our browser the same name as theirs as
we alter the package.
We would have problems from our own perspective using that name as it
suggests non free software be installed via extensions.
