I have no objection to your nr 3 point, but until the reality with copyright maze in Amigaland changes, there is no point crying bloody murder like many do.
I just shrug and look at the product infront of me; will it improve my current setup? Yes. Well, then; since nothing has changed for 20+ years; ill take it.
Is that the perfect solution? As you say; NO, but currently it is what it is.
And to your last point. Sounds nice, but saying "liberation" wont make it happen by magic. I dont disagree with you, it just seems like a discussion Ive seen going on for decades.
