@distrotube having proprietary software is not bad, I mean, everybody loved deli because they pre-install steam. If you don't want some software pre-installed, go ahead, install arch or Debian. Actually, both debian and arch have proprietary software in their repos and no one (just the FSF) gets upset.


Those are some fair points. I prefer things be as foss as possible but understand in some cases there are no viable alternatives.

However with office software, libreoffice is viable so I would rather encourage people use that and make something like freeoffice OPT-IN. People that seek refuge in linux do so mostly to try to get away from proprietary software as much as possible.
