Well, not defining your terms can certainly lead to confusion in a
discussion like this.

Too true.

alt.comp.freeware's definition of *Freeware* is here:
"Freeware: Legally obtainable software that you may use at no cost,
monetary or otherwise, for as long as you wish."

But "freeware" and "free software" are as different as "marriage" and
"marred triage".

Yup. Freeware and "free software" are different concepts. A program can be one, both or neither.
