Heh, there's a recommendation if ever I heard one ;)

Personally, if I were trying to explain Free Software -- even to some computer 
professionals who didn't immediately get the ethical implications of software 
availability -- then I would probably talk about shared knowledge in science 
or something else they'd be more familiar with from an early age.  Once they 
got that, you could then draw parallels.
