Software, whether application software like gcc or system software like Linux which are part of the Free Software Foundation attract masses by their appeal of being free. In reality, this in-born-nature of FSF software of being free (in the sense of freedom of speech and not free beer) is not so clear and cogent to a common man. More significantly, if one takes an in-depth look into the Linux world, things seem to go the other way. Update: Fanatic OSNews reader Hubert Figuiere lets us know of the Paul Ferris’ rebuttal to this editorial. Thanks Hubert!
