   I'm sure I've read it somewhere, but I can't find it on the new web
   sites.  The section "Donated computers" on
   http://www.gnu.org/gnu/the-gnu-project.html suggests that it
   happened even in that flagship FSF project at first.  Why not in

Mark, you do realise that `donated computers' is not the same as
`donated software', let alone `they require non-free software to run'?

   Which of the java systems in debian (classpath, ecj, gcj, gij,
   jamvm, kaffe, sablevm, maybe more) is non-free?

Sun Java.  Then there is also a non-free flash program in Debian,
despite the existance of gnash.

But can we drop this for anotherday?  I'm much more interested in the
whole FSFE recommending and distributing non-free software to people
deal than this old tirade that we have gone through several times now.
