IMHO, it's like playing soccer at the oponents field, with his
ball, his judge and his rules. You can think you can win, but at
the end, he can always change the rules.
Strangly, we are winning, people are aware of Free Software, people do
use Free Software. And we tend to live in democratic societies where
we can actually change the laws.
