I believe what you wrote is slightly misleading: the base VirtualBox
software seems to satisfy the definition of Free Software just fine.
The above wiki page mentions two problems for Debian packaging:
- There's a proprietary "add-on" for it, but that doesn't affect the
status of the base system.
- There's a lack of interest from the main developers to provide
long-term support for older releases which made it too much trouble
for Debian's security team to provide support for it, so it's not in
Debian any more.
