   I don't see how bottom-up cannot get this. How different is this from
   Debian in that regard for instance?

Debian renegaded on their goal of being a 100% free software system,
they now include non-free software.  That is the danger, and it is
very much real.

   No, I have been hearing about issues for 8 years already, i.e. as much
