I wrote also the following as a comment on the blog but didn't appear.

The first problem is that many people don’t understand that Free 
Software is not a matter of price but freedom of software.

The second – and more serious argument regarding the "restrictions" – is 
that the model of Free Software cannot apply to mechanics software 
development because of the significance of its application on human life.

Although this second argument its not so justifiable as it seems I 
believe that the Free Software Community should answer. Also the 
creation of quality Free Software about architecture, design and 
aerospace could be a bomb to the foundations of mega corporations that 
now are monopolies on the market.
