And we are free to compile software ourself.

For me one good reason to think about switching back from Ubuntu to
Debian, but I still wait, to see which distro will solve some upstream
issues. At the moment a lot of software I used for years is completely
broken for Ubuntu. Perhaps I'll use Arch with systemd in the future, I
dropped Arch when it stopped beeing a rolling release, IOW when they
switched to systemd.

Ubuntu seems to do a step into this direction, OTOH since I won the iPad2
I experienced infamies that are completely no gos. I don't know current
Windows, but at least old Microsoft wasn't that evil as Apple is. I never
ever would buy something from Apple, btw. I don't buy, but anyway got
issues with this evil click and buy crime and to use the iPad users are
forced to register with a valid plastics. +1000000000 for all free OS. If
people wish to register as e.g. a Linux user, they are free to do it
without a plastics and I'm free to completely not register.
No, I'm not migrating to FreeBSD ;), but if something should be fishy with
Linux, in my case it's a RME cards that isn't good enough supported for
Linux, we still can try other *NIX. We not only have the freedom to switch
distros or to switch to other *NIX that are close to Linux, we also could
maintain or at least help to maintain packages. The non-free software
issue IMO isn't a real problem, because we easily can add repositories.
Switching for audio work to another *NIX might be not the smartest idea,
but switching the distro is easy to do, as long as the Linux user doesn't
place value on hype, IOW "distro A is better as distro B and this will be
valid for ever and if distro A should ever become less good, than all
other distros must become more less good". We are not married with a
distro and are allowed to have fun with every distro ;).
