Free and open-source software (FOSS) is both free and open-source unlike proprietary software, and anyone is freely licensed to use, copy, study, and change the software in any way, and the source code is openly shared so that people are encouraged to voluntarily improve the design of the software.
Open source - a term for a product with permission to use its source code, design documents, or content, most commonly referring the model, where software or other products are released under a license. Originating with software, it has expanded to cover other open content and collaboration.
