How well does dreamhost align with free software values? Sure, they do donations, even to FSF, but that’s just general charity. Gandi.net, for example, actually supports free software projects, like VLC. Plus, the DH promoted site epubbud.com is all about the iPad! http://www.fsf.org/news/ibad_launch
This scares me away from DreamHost. They are probably catering to a larger audience who doesn’t share free software values. They are a business, so of course that is their choice. But perhaps they shouldn’t be my my choice as a supporter of free software services.
