Many open source licenses do not qualify as free by the FSF’s definition, though. 1 illustrates this relationship.

Debian maintains a policy of using only open source software in its main package set, although it lets freely redistributable but non–open source programs into its “non-free” package set. Because a complete Linux distribution is composed of components using many licenses, it’s not useful to speak of a single copyright or license applying to the entire OS. Instead, you should think of a Linux distribution as a collection of products that comes with a unifying installation utility.

Because AT&T was a telephone monopoly in the United States at that time, it was legally forbidden from selling software. Therefore, when its employees created Unix, AT&T basically gave the OS away. Universities were particularly enthusiastic about adopting Unix, and some began modifying it, because AT&T made the source code available. Thus Unix had a two-decade history of open software development to start. Most Unix programs were distributed as source code, because Unix ran on a wide variety of hardware platforms—binary programs made for one machine would seldom run on a different machine.
