Things we need for ethical technology to reach the masses:
- one great, vertically integrated platform
- great hardware that ships this platform
- ethical online services, integrated with the platform
- lots of good third-party apps for the platform

Things we don't need for ethical technology to reach the masses:
- multiple distros
- mutliple desktops
- multiple toolkits
- "the unix philosophy"
- server-side decorations
- themes

If you're spending your time complaining about the things in the second list to the people trying to make the first list happen, please check your priorities.

@tbernard since we are very clearly going to get neither of ethical technology for the masses nor a satisfying technical dispensation, entirely regardless of whether i'm willing to capitulate on the second, i think i will continue wanting both in equal measure.
