FreeBSD is free.
The CD is not free.

That simple.  Once you have purchased a CD you welcome to copy it or
install it as many times as you wish.  Spending a few dollars on a CD is
one way that many people contribute to the FreeBSD project.

Or you can download it off the Internet, if you have a fast enough
connection or enough patience.

I worry about my child and the Internet all the time, even though she's
too young to have logged on yet. Here's what I worry about. I worry
that 10 or 15 years from now, she will come to me and say "Daddy, where
were you when they took freedom of the press away from the Internet?"

Unix IS user friendly... It's just selective about who its friends are.
System Administration - It's a dirty job, but somebody said I had to do it.
