What does FREE in free software mean?  

Posted by Srikar

Free Software and Free ware are not one and the same!
Free in Free Software indicates Freedom not price,where as free in free ware indicates zero price not freedom.

So be careful when you Speak!
Yahoo Messenger is a Free ware.
Pidgin is a Free Software .
i-Tunes is a free ware.
VLC player is a Free Software.

By these example's I think everyone is clear about what free in free software means!!!

Watch this small video for more clarity!

Hey all.This is just a little something dat srikar deserves and this is no bragging.This guy here leaves a thought lingering in the mind of anyone he meets and talks to about free software.And with the kind of drive and passion he has for it,i'm only being modest when i say that he's going to spearhead this mission to victory!!! Go SRIKAR!!!!!!!!! WE'LL ALWAYS BE THERE WID YA!!!! =)
