I had a professor today use “free software” to refer to software that costs $0, then correct himself and say “freeware, not free software”.

I approve

Even if they aren’t particularly popular terms in the non-tech industry, I still really like when people refer to “free as in freedom” software as free software, and “free as in cost” software as freeware.
