Guido, from DeltaLibre had pointed out (on a private chat we had) the
same thing about the ambiguity of the word Free. He proposed we use
Libre instead.
It's quite generally accepted nowadays the use of the word Libre (common
to many "latin-based" languages) as a replacement for the english word
Free in the Free Software, Free Culture, Free ...  scene.

LibreStack and it's LibreX components sounds great to me.

Liberty sounds good too, but it's a bit longer and I like short,
to-the-point names.
