It is clearly a matter of concern if free software like firefox, 
openoffice, GIMP, inkscape, blender etc are compiled for Vista, and if 
they don't take full advantage of the system due to restriction of the 
OS.  User's will assume that free software works less efficiently, 
without understanding that the cause is due to their digital 
restrictions management. Let us remember that most of free software 
today is inter operable, except of course the kernel Linux.
