The clarification has been made innumerable times, since the time ``certain"
people decided the term ``Free Software" was not the ideal term and values
of freedom would not find place in the software industry and among
``techies". The entire concept is VERY well documented here :


The specifics vis a vis ``Open Source" are here :


At the end of the day its up to your free will to determine are you
interested in ``high quality technically superior software and extreme
amounts of $$$" or are you interested in building a better society based on
freedom and equality.

The decision you make in terms of following the movement and term ``Free
Software " or ``Open Source" consequently decides a better future for one.
Moreover what you preach to others will have an impact as well.

The choice is yours.
