That 'free' you're talking about has never been related to price but to
freedom.

Someone has to pay in order to feed such a gigantic network as the
Internet, but who pays, what amount and in what ways is not the issue.
Someone has to pay because it relies on at least two paid things:
  electricity, hardware (imagine that human time is gratis)

I'm not talking about how those two things should be gratis or not, it
seems reasonable to me that producing a physical thing has a lot more
costs that copying 1's and 0's.

Just don't confuse your freedom with your ability to get things for zero
price.

If I knew someone who had RHEL I would ask him to make a copy of it
without the non-Free parts like Java et all.

It would cost me just the same.
