licenses tell you what the license authors were scared of

  • If you're scared of having your name dragged through the mud, then the BSD license will seem better.
  • If you're scared of having your software put into a proprietary piece of software, then the GPL will seem better

  • free software

nearly all #free software is open source, and nearly all open source software is free.

Proprietary software[edit | edit source]

non-free software (in the sense of missing freedoms), or closed-source software is software that fails to meet the criteria for free or open-source software

  • Freeware is proprietary software that is available for use at no monetary cost.

freeware may be used without payment but may usually not be modified... Two historic examples of freeware include Skype and Adobe Acrobat Reader.
