The meaning of the "Free Beer" analogy

Please use the terms "Joe Sixpack" and "free beer" in a sentence that explains how Joe righteously denounces the giveaway to seek something even freer.

Beer, and software, are a meritocracy. The ideology is just one of the merits (for some, but not all).

Therefore, I propose a new term that makes this apparent:

Free as in cheap

I agree with your proposed change to the analogy. I do not like nor drink beer, so I always hated it. Since I'm a self-proclaimed geek, this expression has ALWAYS annoyed me.

That's odd... because I like beer. And I don't want bad things tarnishing its good name.
