Default Package ms-windows promoted from non-free to main!

Howdie, fellow Debianites!

I'm cross-posting this from debian-project because IMHO it's important

As of yesterday, the package ms-windows (a virtual package comprising
ms-windows-xp, ms-windows-vista and ms-windows-7) has finally left
non-free and entered main! This has been achieved by weeding out all
the binary blobs, drivers and other proprietary data -- a big and
time-consuming effort. The non-DFSG-compliant binaries are now
consolidated into ms-windows-proprietary, and available from the
non-free repository.

Kudos to Debian developers!
