"The word alternative is a bit problematic here. Free software is not
an alternative for Proprietary software. Freedom is the concern here.
There is no alternative for Freedom too.  But there are alternative
options among free softwares. But while referring proprietary
softwares, the term must be 'free software replacement'."
