I actually clicked the link.
  It takes me to a page titled "Introcuccion a Debian", which opens with :
  "Que es Debian ?"
  "Debian es un sistema operativo (SO) libre, o "Open Source", para
  "su computadora."

Libre ofcourse indicates free as in freedom.

Also : for someone who doesnt have much money,
  the gratisness of Debian is probably an important part of its being 'libre'.

So what is this ? A joke ?? 
Who are you anyway ??
( and what do you have against a free bear ? )
