What a load of crap.
I think people need to look at things from both sides. Freeware/Open source is great but it takes a long time and very dedicated people to make a decent product (like Tony with WinUAE). To expect a commercial entity to pour money into a product and expect it to be free is crazy. The company is there to make money, period.
If you want true freeware then reverse engineer the roms, and use legally released games.
I also reject the "All other platforms are free". Care to tell me where I can legally download Nintendo games? How about some PS games? NeoGeo games? Anything??? Nope, they're all illegal to download, the respective IP holders protect them where they can. Just because you can find them on the internet doesn't mean it's legal.
