Vectr shows us again that we have to adopt the term "libre software" instead of "free software"

Reddit - Thu, 2016-09-15 00:34

As you might have seen, the developers of Vectr - a graphic software - have claimed in the title that it is a free software (Vectr - Free Vector Graphics Editor for Linux) . OK, great, I clicked on the website and I was interested in the source code, but after a while it was all clear to me. This is not the free software RMS and most of the Linux community is familiar when talking about a free software.

Please, stop the confusion and make things clear and use "libre software" instead of "free software" whenever you talk about FOSS/FLOSS software. Then, even guys who have developed Vectr wouldn't be able to exploit the terminology like they are doing now.
