To be honest, some business people will cope with it fine and
other business people will get confused as soon as the word
"software" is mentioned.  If you are working for a firm where
software is business-critical and your account executives are
any good, they will be the first type.  If they are the second
type, I think you have far bigger problems than getting them
to understand and market "free software" properly.
