Not the software is evil, but crippling its users.

Oh wow.  GCC does not exist, glibc does not exist, Emacs does not
exist, the file utilities don't exist, the text utilities don't exist,
the binutils don't exist.

He should take a look at the copyright notices in a typical
distribution source disk.
