Seems a little cringey to have a prominent link to some proprietary software right in the freenode title banner while talking about a commitment to FOSS. This is contradictory at best.

Huh? Shells is a cloud service, not a software, as far as I know. I need to read more about it.

This appears to require proprietary software to be installed on either or both host and client systems. Also, being a cloud service does not preclude it being proprietary software.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
