I was not referring to the Movement, but to the word alternative.
Because there is no alternative to freedom. We should use "replacement
to proprietary software" rather than "alternative to proprietary
software". There are many alternatives to some Free Software like
Thunderbird is an alternative to Evolution or Kontact. But Thunderbird
is a replacement to Outlook Express. I hope it is clear now.

RMS reminds us to be careful about every word we use. Some other words
to be careful about are given here
