    This leads me to confusion on the interpretation of what FREEDOM means to 

In general, freedom means having control of your own life.

In regard to software, the freedoms we stand for are described

When a service is equivalent to running a program, you should not
use that service; insist on having a program (free, of course).

    First freedom <> free. Freedom is rooted in choice.

Freedom is not measured by the number of choices.  That's the wrong way
to analyze it, and leads to very bad conclusions.
