+
+# The culture of freedom lies in the details
+
+Here is an
+[interesting blog post](http://ebb.org/bkuhn/blog/2010/01/14/ubuntu-debian.html)
+by [[!wikipedia Bradley Kuhn]] about Ubuntu, Debian, and (warning: my
+interpretation ahead) the culture of freedom.
+
+While reading it, I had kinda moment of truth, because just yesterday I was
+musing with Mehdi and Lucas on the fact that Debian is basically the only
+remaining distribution among the mainstream ones (if that means something) that
+is **free from the ground up**, including its infrastructure. We "just" seek
+hardware via [donations](http://www.debian.org/donations) and then we run,
+thanks to the amazing work of [DSA](http://wiki.debian.org/Teams/DSA), our own
+**free infrastructure** on top of it.
+
+Let's cherish this value!
+
+<small>Thanks to [Roberto Di Cosmo](http://www.dicosmo.org) for the pointer to
+Bradley's post.</small>
