Hey, now that's not such a bad idea. While using the word "libre" instead of "free" has helped some people understand the concept better, it doesn't work so well for English-only speakers (at least those who aren't good at recognising root words). When I try to explain the concept, I try to emphasise that the software itself is freed from being enslaved to any particular person or group.
