You're over-analysing.  

"www.majorgeeks.com" reflects an antique 1980s mindset, where software
is classified according to its acquisition cost model.  This has no
connection to licensing and is a spectrum along a completely different
axis.

The thought of classifying software according to licensing probably
occurs to them only as an afterthought, at best.
