gosh! i trully love <3 libre software but at the same time yesterday setting up 
a GNU/Linux for friend of mine after trying few distros ended up puttin... 

if someone uses Skype, Dropbox and other proprietary services other distros can 
make it bit of a pain in the ass, and here arguments like don't use Skype, 
Dropbox & co. don't come much helpful most of her friends who use MacOS and Win 
won't stop using them... and we still DON'T HAVE libre alternatives offering 
similar smooth experience!

just wanted to chime in that while sometimes we daemonize Ubuntu, without it 
many people would never leave their comfy Win/MacOS behind and here i really 
appreciate work of people from Canonical!

also rather than WASTING our energies on verbally beating up Ubuntu, let's 
better mobilize ourselves to support developments of libre alternatives to 
Skype, Dropbox + long list. ones that not only geeks living in our terminals 
feel ok with using but people who got used to their candy eye interfaces also 
feel happy with!
