Subject to the laws of libel, you are, of course, free to express your 
opinions on any subject under the sun.  However, "technically capable 
people", as you refer to them, will be very familiar with the concept of 
references.  May I therefore respectfully suggest that if you wish your 
views to be taken seriously, rather than just more  misguided 
"proprietary software is evil" propaganda, you back up each of your 
assertions with a reference to a reliable and reputable source, the 
authority of which is beyond all reasonable doubt?
