The boycott of Apple is promoted by the League for Programming
Freedom.  The LPF isn't concerned with question of whether a program
is free software or not.  It's concerned with something more
fundamental: whether you are allowed to write the program at all.

I personally care strongly whether any given program is free.  But the
LPF doesn't share that view.  From the LPF's point of view, it doesn't
matter whether a program for an Apple machine is free software or not.

The idea of the boycott is that Apple is attacking your freedom and
everyone's freedom, so it makes sense to take your business
elsewhere--to buy a computer from someone else.
