Top Voted Definition for #freesoftware

Free software or software libre is software that guarantees the freedom to be used, studied, modified and the freedom to be copied and redistributed in modified or unmodified form. Free software is often available gratis (free of charge). However the focus of the term "free" is on freedom. Richard Stallman summarised the difference in a slogan: "Think free as in free speech, not free beer."
