Why Free Software is better than Open Source

The free software movement's objective is users' freedom. The open source

movement's objective is better quality and cheap software. They would give up freedom for the sake of functionality and price. We would give up functionality or price for the sake of freedom. They are thinking of instant benefit in spite of long term servitude. We are thinking of durable benefit in spite of short term inconvenience.
