"Open source is said to distribute free software, so far so
good, but what exactly we mean by free? Free as is Beer or Free as
The difference can be narrowed down to 'no money' versus 'no
restrictions (or a bit of them)'. In English, free is often
mistaken for both the meanings but in Spanish they have different
words for them, Gratis and Libre.
