idea for calling free software something less confusing: Liberty Software

goes with cabbage!

@calvin rms rejected that idea a few decades ago because it had connotations of women's lib and he didn't want to co-opt their movement.

Maybe those connotations are completely gone now.

@JordiGH to me, I get more readings of "American" than "feminist" - America loves branding things with "liberty" due to the cultural emphasis on it whereas it seems to me "woman's lib" is dated and only muttered by older people who disparage it
