Most free (libre) software is also gratis, but not all! Some free software costs money, but with it comes all of the freedoms to share with your neighbor and make modifications! Buying free software ensures that our traditions can continue, and donating to gratis projects does the same.

We are not truly free until we can help our neighbors and resist exploitation in all walks of life. Keep fighting the good fight, and the fight for free software!
