This is by no means freedom.  not ideologically and not practically as
If such a lot of care is to be taken of a machine then why use such an
OS in the first place?

Yes no virus and all that.  just practical comfort and complete freedom.
I don't know why should people pay the cost of not using their pen
drives and above listed restrictions for keeping the machine running
I have every thing on my ubuntu box and do just about a any thing with
it.  I don't have to take care of all this.
And now don't give me that microsoft's cheep "rattu tota " kind of
answer "since windows is popular there is virus, when linux will become
popular you will hav same problems!"

Happy hacking.
