If your idea of "better" must be forced by a law, it's not better,
you're just being a nazi.

I have a genuinely better alternative for you: just don't run sucky
software. Go install base OpenBSD on a potato, it has everything you
need to be productive with a computer, including no web browser at all
(not even lynx). It has two text editors: vi and mg, both excellent
choices for hacking on C, Perl or shell. It has a toolchain, and loads
of extremely well-written documentation. It comes with the full source
code and a permissive license.

Go write great software - if it has any value, people will prefer it
over sucky alternatives, no stupid regulations required.
