Linux Software for the Raspberry Pi is quickly moving forward. Beyond the several core Linux distros, another couple dozen systems are available, with NetBSD, FreeBSD, and Chromium imminently stepping into the mix. (Ubuntu will not join them as it requires ARMv7 and the Pi is ARMv6). Two dozen programming languages are available, including Python, Perl, Java, Ruby 1.9.2, BASIC, and more. Since the Pi is a full fledged ARM computer, it should run nearly any ARM app within its system requirements. See the RPi Wiki or Foundation website for more info.

I think you're taking all of this way out of proportion. WereCatf and I have had multiple conversations in the past about alternative computing platforms and my understanding is that she is very much interested in the myriad technologies out there, especially ARM. However, anyone (you and I included) would be a fool to ignore the implications of closed hardware on that platform.

You might want to step back and try to get a little perspective before mouthing off and making a fool of yourself. Just a suggestion.
