Default Proprietary software that's hard to avoid.

Actually you can run your car on free software (since 2011), although
it's definately still at the 'enthusiast' level:

And you can tune it with free software so long as it's a Subaru:

As it's pretty-much impossible to buy a car without an ECU in now,
next time I get one I'll have to take a look at this stuff. This is
one bit of proprietary software I'd be quite keen to swap out.
