I'd seen it on another list but not actually read it until now.  I was 
amazed to see something by Richard Stallman on the Beeb's site.  This 
will go some way to explain about Free Software to some of the folks 
where I work who I've got to convince about distributing The Open Disc 
through them.

I don't suppose anyone knows of any good articles that have been 
released under the GNU FDL or Creative Commons share-a-like licence that 
explain Free and Open Source (or just Free) Software to someone who has 
grown up in a Microsoft world and doesn't understand it (and more to the 
point thinks that distributing Free Software isn't legal?).
