The "free" in "Free Software" refers the "freedom" (- a part of human rights, free as in free speech), it is NOT related with price which is often misunderstood as "free" in "free of charge" (free beer). Also, the term "Free Software" came from GNU Project started in 1984, when the term "open sources software" was not invented yet. Please read the nice article by RMS (Dr. Richard M. Stallman) covering the difference between Free Software and open sources software.
