Leaving the guix project

Hello guixers!

I am very grateful for all the things I could learn during my time
here and all the awesome work that you guys put in.

But I wish to leave the guix project and that my savannah account be
removed. This is not a decision I make lightly. The reason why I
decided it was time to move on is because I do not wish to be part of
GNU or the FSF.

I believe that the reason why free software is better and will always
be better than non-free software, is because of all the love and care
that we put in. It's about building cool and awesome stuff. I think
that this is the reason free software has become a viable alternative
to non-free software.

I also believe that the gnu project has moved away from those core
values and focuses instead on petitioning websites and hardware
manufacturers to release work they have invested a lot of money in
developing, often in very pushy and uncivil ways. Even if they
succeed, I do not really care about this expensive, rushed to market
and badly engineered code. I believe that the free software community
can do much better on it's own.

I hope you can understand and respect my decision.
