Commentary: Open source software is NOT free!
Author: JT Smith
From a column on ZDNet: "Lots of individuals and companies invest lots of hours and sweat in creating, testing, and maintaining that so-called 'free' software. So free software is not cost free. In that case, who pays for it? And who owns it? The free software community pays, in a manner of speaking, for the development of free software."
