No, Reco. _You_ are confusing the language. In English English "free
software" measn BOTH "open source" and "costs nothing". He is confusing
nothing, though he certainly didn't make himself clear.
When I say free software I always say either "as in speech" or "as in beer" to
make it clear which I mean. But "free software" MEANS BOTH.
If I am speaking to a linguist I simply use the French: gratuit or libre.
