True, but its not just about ethics, but more necessity. I use some
commercial software on my GNU/Linux system simply because there is no
free version available which meets my requirements and these are
fundamental to being able to work on Linux. I have released som
software as GPL which interfaces with the commercial software. If
there was free/open source version that had the features I require, 
I'd use it, but there isn't.
