OSNews/Linux Foundation seems to emphasize that the ad must talk about the benefits of being free. I'm running a free operating system, writing now using a free browser and there are a lot of ways out there for showing these videos using free software, but I can't because it's in Flash*.

Funny. For more than a decade, I don't know what most of people means when they say free. Even when these people are the "big guys" trying to spread that free is better.
