No, it's not freeware, it's GPL'ed. In essence that means it's free (as in freedom), but you're not 100% free to do whatever you please with it.
- you can sell it, Toni doesn't get a dime, nor does the original UAE team
- you are entitled to the source
- if you modify the source and distribute your own modified version, you must also give the source with your modified version, and the GPL license sticks to your version too.

Oh, please don't mistake me for an open source fanatic.. I'm typing this on a Windows machine and I'm not hating every minute of it. I just like to call things with their real names, that's all. :-)
