An unfounded claim that something is free does not make it so.

Although the author has offered to make the source code available to
"a suitably-constituted development team" to port Pegasus to a
GNU/Linux operating system, the "suitably-constituted development
team" would have to sign an NDA, and let the original author control
the distribution of binary versions of the program. This is not free
by any known definition of the term.
