What? Just 50 users?! MS Windows has much more users!

Dees the number of users really matters? The guys created this distro to act for their moral values and only this matters. Some people call such people "fundamentalists" but you can call them also protectionists of the free software idea that point out software that is not free. Well, we know this software but will the Ubuntu user of tomorrow recognize this software too? I do not want GNU/Linux to became a sort of a Linux based MS distribution.

If you don't like the distro, do not use it. To my mind it is a great idea but I am also reliant on the crappy realplayer and the nasty Macromedia virus plugin.
