This is a recurring and apparent problem. A free app here or there 
from an enthusiast group is one thing, maybe used in Windows, but a 
complete freedom of a complete system, which one is going to rely on 
for stable reliable trusted, ongoing use? How can that be free? Why is 
it free? Are they nuts?

The closest I ever get to briefly explaining this is that the software 
is based on a philosophy of 'Caring and Sharing'. However it is 
licenced with a strong legally defended basis.
