Despite what most people think, FOSS isn't just about saving money. It's also about freedom -- the freedom to do what you want with code, and the freedom to understand how code works and build on that understanding.

Here's one guy who's going to look a little more carefully before he downloads his next extension for Firefox. Err... Iceweasel. :)
