A zealous advocate of free (as opposed to proprietary) software.

The freetard's entire identity is based around using free and open source software such as Linux, and he spends every waking hour of every day writing self-serving propaganda as to why he is superior to anyone who uses software whose licensing does not allow you to reverse engineer/copy/modify and then release your own version of somebody else's work.
"Hey guys, can you help me get this game installed on Windows 10?"
"You use Micro$oft Windows? Don't you know that software doesn't respect your freedoms? You should use GNU/Linux like me! BTW, I use Arch."
"Oh great, here come the freetards to derail the thread."

one who firmly believes in not paying for e.g. software, films, music. Generally an avid proponent of p2p filesharing
Fred thinks Hollywood will make films even if nobody pays to see them. He's such a freetard.

A person whose ability to make rational decisions is impaired by the possibility of receiving something for free.
A freetard would visiting a fair on free admission day, even though the fair is overcrowded, he/she spends way more time in line and he/she loses a day of pay which far exceeds the cost of admission.

A freetard would use a broken, buggy piece of software when a quality option is available for a few dollars and would quickly pay for itself in time and frustration saved.

You: "Quit stepping on the back of my shoe"
Freetard: "It's a free country I do what I wanna"
You: You're such a freetard
You: Why are we at war in Iraq when they never attacked us?
You: I liked you better with your cocaine habit.
