Hi, In English, 'free software' is a term that refers to the programmer's freedom: the programmer is free to do whatever to the program. The word 'free' also bears the meaning 'priceless', that the advocates of the concept fight against. They claim, among other things, that the problems of using the term are about limited to English. I doubt their claim, because I think they did not investigate the issue. For example, in Russian, using this term, calqued as "свободное программное обеспечение", is yet more problematic, because the adjective "свободный" simply cannot have the English meaning at all, when applied to the programs. It can have either of the two meanings: 1) nobody is currently using the program, or any other object (for example, "ящик от пива свободен" ("beer package is free") means nobody is currently sitting on top of the wooden package); 2) the program (not the programmer) is free to do whatever, but generally things that the programmer has not expected (like buggy, but yet, on the other hand, programs can't have will). Neither of these meanings fits, so the expression sounds really meaningless and weird. I have a question to the community here. Does your language have some kind of problem with the term 'free software'? What kind of problem, if the answer is 'yes'? Thanks to everybody!
