And Non-Free Software contains a built-in propagation gene which
cannot evolve its medium (technology) as quickly as the license-gene
for Free Software can.

But evolution requires competition, and this is why I think the
relationship between free and non-free software is becoming
increasingly sybiotic - when private companies do something which
benefit themselves and improve the quality of Free Software - it's a
win/win for Freedom and Technology.
