In addition to that: with real free software you can be quite sure, the 
program doesn't do things, you don't want it to.
...no, I'm wrong, there are lots of things going on in my system, that I 
don't want to happen. But at least they were initially intended to help 
me to do the things i wanna do. Hmm, maybe my english is a bit crappy...
Just consider spyware in a gratis downloadable game. You want to play 
the game, the company wants information about you. Two interests, both 
served by the same software. (Put like this, it sounds really great :))
