Free vs. proprietary is not the same as free vs. payware.

e.g. iTunes, Flash and Silverlight are free as in beer, but proprietary (and Silverlight is free with a payware OS). So what did you mean? Open Source/Free (by strict GPL) vs. Proprietary, or Freeware vs. Payware?

VLC Media Player stands out. gcc and friends also, like generally a lot of behind-the-scenes stuff. I'd have said Apache and/or Tomcat, but they are not GPL
