Mh, I'm very confused now...
Please find confusing sentences with "software" bellow:

* Free Software gives us essential freedom that other type of software
deny us.

* Free Software can be used as tool.

* There is an incredible number of Free Software available

*  However, fortunately Free Software accounts for a large proportion of
those embedded software.

Are those sentences ok? Sorry for the very basic question. I'll ask a
native English speaker to proofread the whole leaflet and improve the
wording, but I'd like to understand..
