The question is... what is useful for us all, not only for *you* or
*me*?

More and more, not gaining control over your software means your
vendor gains control over you (cf. the stampede to the cloud, apps,
many vendor's move to pay-per-use and subscription models, etc. etc.)

To have a remote chance of having a say on this, we "consumers"
have to bundle forces.

No, I don't want to be reduced to a gullet.
