Free Beer, Power and Knowledge

The next bottle of beer

What is Free Software? What is a distribution of Free Software? Why do I have to pay something if people tell me it is free? What exactly do I get for my money? How can I find the things I really need in the jungle of Free Software?

These questions might be asked by people who heard something in the news about Linux, Firebird etc. but do not have a concept about the ideas behind it. The talk tries to give reasonable answers while beeing careful with the usual polemic about this topic.
