Proprietary Quotations

Proprietary software tends to have malicious features. The point is with a proprietary program, when the users don't have the source code, we can never tell. So you must consider every proprietary program as potential malware.
Richard Stallman

Twitter freaks me out. You have followers? It feels so obsessive and proprietary.
Mos Def

As the web becomes more and more of a part of our every day lives, it would be a horrible tragedy if it was locked up inside of companies and proprietary software.
Matt Mullenweg

If you use a proprietary program or somebody else's web server, you're defenceless. You're putty in the hands of whoever developed that software.
Richard Stallman

Proprietary software keeps users divided and helpless. Divided because each user is forbidden to redistribute it to others, and helpless because the users can't change it since they don't have the source code. They can't study what it really does. So the proprietary program is a system of unjust power.
Richard Stallman
