If this is true, then the Debian web page will certainly have to be

Its current form:

"What is Debian?

Debian is a free operating system (OS) for your computer".

The 'free' is a hyperlink to the DFSG, so there is no ambiguity there.
And there is certainly no ambiguity with respect to the word 'is'.

If it is true that a majority of developers feel this way, then
perhaps it should be changed to look like this:

"What is Debian?

Debian is a mostly free operating system (OS) for your computer."
