Then it's a misunderstanding, note that English isn't my native
language. You misunderstood what I've written about the "disclaimer",
perhaps regarding to my broken English. In the context of what you've
written I read that "free as in beer" does mean "every low level is
allowed", so again a misunderstanding. However, you've also written
about ethics, so IMO it's better to encourage people to use Linux
instead of deleting Linux installs. FWIW as I already pointed out, I
don't recommend Linux myself to everybody, since for some people Linux
the wrong choice.
