I would like to ask about the licence.

This software is presented as "Open Source Geographic Information System" but it is free also for company?

Can I use it for creation of commercial maps in my business?

It seems to be good alternative to ArcWIE.

    It would help if you identified WHAT SPECIFIC software you were interested in? There are many open-source GIS software products. Commented Oct 20, 2012 at 17:02

    I guess QGIS - its the first google hit (for me) for that exact phrase.
