Actually, I tend to think that it's not about defending FLOSS, but more
towards provision of choices and the education of the people towards
making an informed choice. 

Right now, the situation is skewed towards making un-informed decisions
and this is not helped by the public not knowing what choices they have.

Unfortunately, as others have pointed out, these opinions to the press
are unheeded and disregarded.
