FOSS is an acronym for Free Open Source Software. It is a concept Linux users use but not all of them understand. I read Jeff’s post on the subject and found it very clear to understand and with his permission I am linking to it here.
Jeff Hoogland is the author of the Thoughts on Technology blog and the creator of Bodhi Linux. A simple to use and very customizable Linux distro based on Ubuntu as a base. But this post is about FOSS and I encourage your to read Jeff’s post and explore the ideas behind it on your own. Without FOSS we probably would not be where we are in the Linux world today. Thank you Jeff for allowing me to link to your work.
