Yes, I have always also heard it like that. But then I saw a question to 
Stallman, "that doesn't make sense, there's no real free beer"? And he 
answered that no, but people are misquoting. It was originally "free as 
in free speech, not as in free beer" or something pretty close... If 
there are some real gpl stallman enthusiast there, feel free to flame me 
for mistelling/quoting/having proprietary nvidia drivers on the laptop..
