The current pricing for an unlimited server liense for FreeBSD is 27342.71 
Quatloos.  Payment may also be tendered in gold-presed latinum, albeit that
is subject to highly volatile exchange-rate fluctuations.

Having completed the licensing requirements, you can download a complete
installation, including source, from any of the mirror repositories, at
no additional cost. Or you can pay a third party a nominal fee (set by
mutual agreement between you and them) to have them make copies on the 
physical media of your choice.
