In reply to: no; it's free software.

Please, check the link to the licensing discussion. I've put it in my post for a reason.
It would be good if that reason were evident from the post itself. In this case, you just hyperlinked the wrong text. The text X/MIT, GPL, and LGPL does not say "licensing discussion." It suggests a link or links to descriptions of three licenses.
In this case, the text There are only 3 free software licenses would have been better text to hyperlink, and "as discussed here" would be even better.
I don't know about you, but I virtually never click on every hyperlink in a document. I have to have some clue it's something I want to read.
