FOSS is political, but also kinda weird.
Most political viewpoints have nay-sayers, but you don't get people who say 'code should be hidden'. Nobody loves Windows - they put up with it. Nobody says it's great that all governments have their computers controlled by a single, foreign corporation.
It's 100% 'raising awareness' and 0% antagonism.
