There is no reason to compromise on freedom.

The only reason I use Unix and KDE is because of the freedom. If it 
weren't for that I would have switched to Mac OSX long ago. This 
freedom should not go away just because you are not a 
wet-behind-the-ears newbie fresh from Windows. The same freedom must be 
given to developers.

I don't want a desktop where everyone dresses the same, eats the same 
food, and sends their kids to the same schools. I've seen that desktop, 
and it's called Windows. In case you haven't heard, it's sucks. Nearly 
every Windows component is good, the problem is higher up. The problem 
is that it's been integraged into a "one size fits all" solution that 
manages to please no one.

Freedom takes more effort than tyranny, but that's no excuse to give up 
on freedom.
