 >if [Stallman] was president, all software would be Libre, and Microsoft and  
Apple would be out of business...unless they comply with the Free System  
guidelines.

Proprietary software is a global problem. Presidents have power in their  
country and it limited by the existing laws. To change the law usually  
requires approval from the chambers of law. Software companies and users  
(recall that most users _crave_ to use proprietary software) would for the  
most part oppose changes to the status quo and he could not do much, even for  
his country, let alone for the rest of the world.

lounge, please do not derail this thread.
