Commercial, open-source, and ``free'' (GPL) software

Just a point of clarification, but open-source and free software
are quite different concepts, as the people of FSF (the authors of
the GPL and GNU) have taken great pains to point out (please see FSF
web-site: <http://www.fsf.org/>), and, in any case, neither is
necessarily ``free'' in the sense many on this list seem to assume.
As the adage of the FSF says: ``Free software is a matter of liberty
not price. You should think of "free" as in "free speech".''
Please avoid sending me Word or PowerPoint attachments.
