"Free software" and "commercial software" are completely orthogonal
categories. Most software, Free, open source or proprietary, is
written with profit in mind. Red Hat sell commercial Free
software. "Free" refers to what customers are free to do with it, not
how much they pay. See [1] for an in-depth explanation and examples.
