  1. FOSS = Free and Open-source Software, not only free to use but to modify. Or was I the only one who didn’t recognize the FLA?

    1. Hi Steve, maybe I’m missing something but right now, “FLA” doesn’t ring a bell with me. Not sure what you mean.

      About FOSS . . yes, it’s Free & Open Source Software. The way the Linux/BSD community defines Free is “Free as in speech, not free as in beer” . . . meaning rights versus price.

      In FOSS – there are 4 Basic User Freedoms

      > The freedom to run the program as you wish, for any purpose (freedom 0).

      > The freedom to study how the program works, and change it so it does your computing as you wish (freedom 1). Access to the source code is a precondition for this.

      > The freedom to redistribute copies so you can help your neighbor (freedom 2).

      > The freedom to distribute copies of your modified versions to others (freedom 3). By doing this you can give the whole community a chance to benefit from your changes. Access to the source code is a precondition for this.

      The GPLv2 or the GPLv3 are the only licenses that provide the 4 user freedoms above.

      Per Richard Stallman (founder of the GPL (among other things)):

      “A program is free software if it gives users adequately all of these freedoms. Otherwise, it is nonfree. While we can distinguish various nonfree distribution schemes in terms of how far they fall short of being free, we consider them all equally unethical.”
