    • FREE Speech vs FREE Beer
    • "Free software'' is a matter of liberty, not price. To understand the concept, you should think of "free speech'', not "free beer.'‘ - Richard Stallman
    • FREE Speech = Access to source code
    • FREE Beer = Free to use without paying
    • Richard Stallman – GNU (Gnu Not Unix)
    • GPL – Free copyleft license for software
  • 4. Socially Responsible FREE Software
    • Free Software Foundation
    • Free software is a matter of the users' freedom to run, copy, distribute, study, change and improve the software. More precisely, it refers to four kinds of freedom, for the users of the software:
    • 0 The freedom to run the program, for any purpose (freedom 0).
    • 1 The freedom to study how the program works, and adapt it to your needs (freedom 1). Access to the source code is a precondition for this.
    • 2 The freedom to redistribute copies so you can help your neighbor (freedom 2).
    • The freedom to improve the program, and release your improvements to the public, so that the whole community benefits (freedom 3). Access to the source code is a precondition for this.
