Hi Guido,

I do see your point, but as long as systemd is Free Software, I wouldn't call
it proprietary. The fact that me might not have the resources to exercise the
freedom _fully_ does play a role, but does not make the software non-free. You
might not be able to run a newspaper, but still enjoy freedom of press.
