Spreading the FUD

OSNews.com is once again spreading FUD. They post posted this "Free Software isn't free in reality" news, that points to an LXer article, but forgot to talk about Paul Ferris' editorial posted in response to the aforementionned article, and linked from it.

Looks like OSNews is in need of decent writers.
