What is free software

Free software refers to the freedom of users to execute, copy, distribute, study, modify and make the software even better. More precisely, it refers to four specific kinds of freedom for the software users:

  • The freedom to execute the software, for any purpose;
  • The freedom to study how the software works, and adapt it to his or her needs;
  • The freedom of redistribute copies, so that you can help people who are near you;
  • The freedom of making the software better, and distributing this better software, so that everybody get the benefit of it.
