You just did, I declare a GNU/Jihad.
 
  
>Google and Facebook are proper nouns. That means they should be capitalised.
 
I feel like capitalising them give these things respect, when they deserve none. Fine, I won't change these words as you asked me.
 
 
>"Free" software and (free) "Open Source" software have different meanings.
 
Oh, we got here an "open source" infidel.
 
No, not one person or business has called gratis, proprietary software, "free software" - they say "freeware", "for free", or "it's free" - any readers will very quickly learn what free software means even if they misunderstand it at first.
 
"open source" is a much worse term, as it's as confusing as hell. The only natural meaning is; "you can look at the source code", so that's what almost all people take it to mean.
 
Good luck explaining the 10 "open source" requirements to someone and having them remember it - in most cases they'll go away with; "you can look at the source code".
 
It is high heresy to refer to free software licensed under the GPLv{2,3}, expat, ISC, BSD {0,1,2,3}-clause as "open source".
 
Anyway, it's simply wrong to label software licensed under the GPLv{2,3} as "open source", as "open source" is not written in the license - "free software" is.
