as in GPL, is what I would think...

it would be free software, but I guess you can't make too many copies
neway, since the guy you sell it to, can legally distribute the
software he bought free of cost...
> Till today, many see Linux as Free as in "Free beer" :)
frankly speaking, that is the reason Linux is getting popular, atleast
amongst the corporate sector. "more cost effective", as they put it :)
it moves on...
