-The word "free" refers to freedom, not price; think "free speech", not "free 
beer". When there are users that value support and are willing to pay for it, 
free software means a free market for support, instead of a monopoly. Free 
software also offers government agencies a way to fulfil their responsibility 
to maintain sovereign control over the state's computers, and not let that 
control fall into private hands.

-Since 1984, groups of volunteers have developed and maintained powerful and 
useful free programs - a few at first, then entire operating systems such as 
GNU+Linux and BSD. Today, the Free Software Directory (www.gnu.org/directory) 
lists almost 4,000 free software packages. The UK government has already 
decided to increase its use of free software; here is a perfect opportunity to 
both use it and contribute.
