FOSS is and has always been about choice.
Don't like the software as it is? Fork it. Make it better.
Want to adapt the software to some other purpose? Feel free.
But what's great about FOSS is when projects have the ability and empathy to listen to their users and work with them. We're at our best when caring users and empathetic developers converge to make something great.
I don't want FOSS to be the best because it's FOSS; I want FOSS to be the best because it's considerably better.
