Thank you for creating and sharing FBackup - it looks like a swell application.
On the homepage, it says: "It’s free (as in speech, not beer)."

If that is the case, where is the source code download?

Or perhaps there was some confusion over what the phrase means?

Thanks for pointing that out. However, FBackup is a free software but not an open source one. I'll modify that sentence to avoid confusion.

Do you know you can monitor your backups remotely with Backup4all Monitor? You can read more here: https://www.backup4all.com/backup4all-monitor.html

Even though I agree the sentence might have left room for some confusion, I still think it's quite funnily put :D too bad you couldn't keep it, I like the idea.
