Dear Erin and Nathan.

I hope the following makes things clearer

Libre software, free software and open source are practically the same
thing. I usually ask this type of software to be called libre to avoid
the ambiguity between gratuity and freedom. Libre is unmistakably the
best term to communicate (if you agree that freedom is the most
important issue).

The other term is used usually by people that do not care if their users
are free or not.

Hope this info is useful.

Happy hackin'
