Right On Debian
I choose GNOME over KDE based purely on license issues (well, and the fact that GNOME has nicer icons) and I think admirably of Debian for excluding KDE from their distribution.
IMO, license awareness is an overlooked issue in modern software. People are to used to skipping over license agreements for shareware that they don't care anymore. People! These are your rights at stake here. Free Software for the people. Free Beer is not always without complications.
