The conclusion of my article (http://rdereel.free.fr/volLQ1.html) was: 
Les logiciels libres sont aussi la r?alisation concr?te d?une utopie, o? 
la propri?t? et l?individualisme sont abolis. C?est pourquoi ceux qui 
font de Richard Stallman un marxien convaincant n?ont probablement pas 
tort, et, aujourd?hui, l?on ne voit gu?re d?autre issue au monde 
capitaliste que la voie suivie par les milliers d?informaticiens 
pratiquant les logiciels libres. Un petit pas pour leur ordinateur, un 
grand pas pour l?humanit?.

That I could try to translate like that:

The free softwares are also an actual execution of an utopy, where 
property and individualism are abolished. That's why the people who say 
that Richard Stallman is a convaincing marxian [?? in French there's a 
difference between "marxist" which means "communist" and "marxien" which 
means "like the economical theory of Marx"] might be right, and, today, 
one can't see other way out from capitalism than the way that follow 
thousands of programmers who work on free softwares. One small step for 
their computer, one giant leap for mankind.
