  Technically you're right.  In the real world, most people--even 
programmers equate Open Source with "Free and I can do whatever I want 
with it."

  Technically you could say Flextras components are open source software 
since the source is available.  But, people would complain when they 
found out it wasn't free.  I think I was in the business for about 1 
hour before I started using the phrasing "the source is available [for 
purchase]" in response to the question  "Is it open source?"
