OK, now that I’ve outed myself as anti-GPL, I guess I may as well go ahead and publish my rant on the phrase “free software”. I guess I’ve got no more credibility to lose as far as the FSF goes anyway.
The phrase “free software” has exactly one correct grammatical meaning, and guess what, it isn’t the one the Free Software Foundation keeps on pushing.
Software can of course be free as in “costing nothing”. [All definitions are from NZ Pocket OED, 1988.]
Can it be free as in “power of acting without constraint of necessity or fate”? No. 
Can it be free as in “not a slave”? Well, only in the trivial sense  that no software is a slave, since the word only applies to people.
Can it be free as in “not under the control of another [other than the software itself]”? Again, no. 
Well, I don’t want to go through the entire list of definitions (it takes up an entire column) but you get the idea. Some of the definitions can be applied to software, such as “available to all” but they don’t match the meaning of “free software” as defined by the FSF either.
And of course using the phrase “free software” with the FSF’s meaning causes endless confusion with the (more correct) meaning of the word “free”.
So, what should we call GPL and other similarly licensed software? My vote (so to speak) is for “freedom software”. This isn’t exactly euphonious, but at least it isn’t confusing and it means what it says – software that supports freedom. (Even if it seems to me to be an odd kind of freedom for people to worry about.)
The upshot is that I’ve decided to start using “freedom software” instead of “free software”. I’m hoping it won’t be necessary to explain myself too often. I invite you to join me. 🙂
 Except for an AI, I suppose, but that’s not really the point.
