Proclaiming open software as "free" was not the best idea IMO,
and the "Just for fun" slogan didn't help much either.

Promulgate it. Sure.
The difficulty: Open source is a whole different concept, thus
you have to explain it. Thus it's difficult, complicated.
People initially try to apply known concepts
( see an advertisement, go to a store, find the beauty package, buy
it, call customer support ... )
to open software and usually fail.

Thus, sometimes somehow you are paying the open software with time,
spend efforts, work, investment ...
