I think you're now confusing free software with freeware. Free
software app has to be open source (but not in opposite way -
 freeware and open source apps not always are free software)

What he did is freeware. Open source could be when I'd be able to look
at source, and free software would be when I'd be able to do with that
source what I want.

Remember, in "free software" term free means freedom, not free beer
(as in freeware) :P
