I was also very surprised by this. I laughed somewhat at how the text says the non-free software is "not at all a part of Debian", even though it was written to be shown during a Debian installation. Some serious double-think there, IMHO.

Hi guys, i tried install gNewSense 3 from QEMU to test the new features from the text expert installer, but on "configure the package manager" option, the installer offers a option which suggests nonfree software installation, if i don't choose it, the installer offers contrib software.
