If you read the whole article it actually promotes Free and Open Source 
Software.  The only issue is that Schwartz mixes up the definition of 
Free Software -- occasionally he refers to software with zero cost as 
Free software and FOSS as Open Source, which I guess he's entitled to 
do.  Apart from that he's making strong and valid points against 
proprietary software.  Good article.
