Gcompris requires 20$ for registration to unlock most of the program features... It is not correct to classify this software as free or include in free software portal. 22.214.171.124 10:50, 28 August 2007 (UTC)
Sorry to resurrect an old issue, but the first discusser was actually right. It doesn't matter that the code is available for GNU/Linux, if you cannot get access to it just because you use Windows, the program is not free as in freedom. Freedom 0 is "The freedom to run the program, for any purpose". --–w2bhtalk•contribs 14:39, 15 March 2010 (UTC)
You are free to download the source code and compile it yourself for Windows (although you would probably want to remove the code prompting for a key). However, many users will choose not to do so because compiling the software for Windows is likely to be more involved than GNU/Linux. This was discussed briefly on the fsf-community-team mailing list in June 2012 (the archives are private, but you can view them if you sign up for the list).
