That is maybe your way of finding free software. Since 1999 I find it from 
distributions and if I don't believe it enough I will look into license.

I never go to proprietary software catalogue to find free software. Today we 
know by work of fully free and FSF endorsed Distributions which packages are 
free and which not.
