„Freedom means not having a master. And in the area of computing, freedom means not using proprietary software.“

—  Ричард Мэттью Столлман, 2000s, Context: To have the choice between proprietary software packages, is being able to choose your master. Freedom means not having a master. And in the area of computing, freedom means not using proprietary software. Free Software and Beyond: Human Rights in the Use of Software", address at Goeteborg, Sweden (16 May 2007)

„But freedom means more than the right to change masters.“

—  Bob Black American anarchist 1951
The Libertarian as Conservative (1984), Context: Some people giving orders and others obeying them: this is the essence of servitude. Of course, as Hospers smugly observes, “one can at least change jobs,” but you can’t avoid having a job — just as under statism one can at least change nationalities but you can’t avoid subjection to one nation-state or another. But freedom means more than the right to change masters.

„The term "free software" has an ambiguity problem: an unintended meaning, "Software you can get for zero price," fits the term just as well as the intended meaning, "software which gives the user certain freedoms."“

—  Richard Stallman American software freedom activist, short story writer and computer programmer, founder of the GNU project 1953
1990s, Why "Free Software" is better than "Open Source" (1998), We address this problem by publishing a more precise definition of free software, but this is not a perfect solution; it cannot completely eliminate the problem. An unambiguously correct term would be better, if it didn't have other problems.
