Here's an article that discusses directly the differences between freeware and open source...

 

"Freeware refers to software that is, well, free of cost to use for an unlimited period of time...Freeware may be proprietary in nature, in that the source code may be closed to users, but not necessarily.

 

"Open source software refers to software whose code is open to users to use, change and improve the product, as well as to redistribute the modified forms."
