The "cat is out of the bag" for a host of proprietary solutions
(including zero-cost ones) too, so that is a red herring.

The default installations and offerings are something which people
assume to be "politically correct" by default.  That's what they will
feel fine using, contributing to, and recommending to others without the
expectation of requiring second thoughts even if they are fully in
support of the GNU project and the FSF's goals.
