Short for Free Open Source Software. Also sometimes known as FLOSS where the additional "L" wants to emphasize the meaning of "Free" in other languages, like in libre, livre or libero. FOSS, FLOSS and Open Source are mostly used for the same or at least similar things, although many people would disagree and only accept one over the others. LakeDrops has no reason to participate in those arguments and wants to focus on the licensing model which has huge relevance for us and in Open Source we're describing what that means.
