I would like to agree with Peter. We need a better slogan for the web

The "equal chances" one is merely on there because I felt we should
get rid of the "consciousness of software" one as soon as possible
since it sounds very much like the raised finger and is likely to turn
people away that don't know about Free Software already. It was never
intended as the final solution, however.

So we are looking for a simple to understand slogan that won't turn
people away because it raises the moral finger and that expresses an
important aspect of Free Software.

Does anyone have a good idea?
