They also show high rates of satisfaction and trust in him. However, a small group of users shows disappointed: those who have had a problem with him (3%), hardly will return to try it. It’s a disappointed group of users, who knows the free software but that has not met your expectations well because it doesn’t have as many features as you expect, or because they have had safety problems. 54% Of users associated with free software = software gratisPero the value of free software has nothing to do with the economic aspect.
However, as user level most free applications are also free of charge, the term tends to be confused. The proponents of free movement want to publicize this philosophy, the real value that offers free software: freedom in the use, modification, distribution and improvement. It has been shown that the users who know this philosophy value more the quality and security of this software, rely on it more and are much more willing to use it to other users. It is logical that users associate free software with free software because most of free applications at the user level. In PortalProgramas, for example, all free programs are free. It is important to know the true philosophy of such applications because it is this, and not the price, the true value of free software.
