"Freedom" Is The Key To Free Software

"Free software" is a matter of liberty, not price. To understand the concept, you should think of

  • "free" as in "free speech,"
  • not as in "free beer."

Freedom to innovate, to add value, to adapt for one's specific needs - these are the freedoms that "free" software makes possible.

This concept can be applied to the entire [Computing Stack]().
