Thanks, Ciaran, and to the other people who posted links. I'll start
working on my talk soon, and if I find some information of interest that
no-one has pointed to here, I'll post it.

Regarding the language it really doesn't matter for the purpose of this
investigation, since the only real point that matters in a job/company
setting is whether we have a business case or not;  and in the long run
we probably do  :-) , but my personal beliefs regarding software freedom
probably won't be able to sell the business case on their own.
