A more precise term for those in the know: open source software that also has a liberal license, for some definition of liberal.
🔗
Ciro Santilli defines liberal as: "can be commercialized without paying anything back" (but possibly subject to other restrictions).
🔗
He therefore does not consider Creative Commons licenses with NC to be FOSS.
🔗
For the newbs, the term open source software is good enough, since most open source software is also FOSS.

But when it's not, it's crucial to know.
