Well, you might want to take Firefox off the list too, as it's a 
"commercial" program as well.

Oh, did you mean to say "proprietary" or "closed-source"?

Regardless, it's a bit closed-minded -- are we here to spread the GNU 
religion, or to help people find the best way to get done whatever it is 
they want to get done?  (I suppose for me, it's a mix of the two, but 
leaning toward the latter.)
