For me, that's sound <b>realistic</b> and <b>practical</b>
statements. What's important IMO is :<br>
<li>To have open formats for all the documents & sources so
that anyone can use open source and free tools and don't face
some huge licence fees that might be a showstopper in one's
<li>The developpers shall be able to use the tools of their choice
because : 1) they have them, 2) they are trainned for them. In
my understanding, this what is under Nikolaus' <font

with any non-free tool, we can't even start"</font>.
Efficiency is a main driver.</li>
<li>Let's have it work !<br>
My two cents.....<br>

<pre wrap="">My attitude is: don't be fundamentalistic with "freedom" but focus on
"free and open software" (and information exchange).
The goal of the GTA04 is to support free and open software better as
any other portable hardware you can get. And this is independent from
using non-free tools during design and production. If we rule out to work
with any non-free tool, we can't even start.
So we use non-free tools where it is the best decision to bring
forward the project. If the project becomes successfull, we can
think about replacing more and more of those non-free components
But this is IMHO the second step.
