Perhaps this could be a key part of messaging? That for Linux distros, choice should be possible,
and the user should be able to choose freely what he or she wants; that it seemingly violates
the spirit of free and open source software to bind users to a set of software and to make
actual choice nearly impossible for regular users; and to then claim, deceptively, that the
user has choice (if that is what is going on; I would need to check) is just sad.
