If there were two identical software offerings but one labeled "open source"  
and the other "free software" I'd always pick the latter. However, in case of  
one package labeled "open source" I would not refuse it because of that  
language.

This article deals with this issue nicely.

Different choice of words convey different ideas. And it matters.
