One phrase I heard recently and struck a chord:

Needs Unite, Ideas Divide

We all need Free Software but I think the attitude toward non-free seems to 
vary - I seem to be on the side of "I don't care as long as I know where they 
are on my system"

So yes, I think we just need to have a separate community and happily work 
together 😄
