Be careful: open source is not free software.

The term "open source" was used years before OSD.
Lots of people mean by "open source" only having the
sources with a program and don't talk about freedom.
I suggest you to ban "open source" from your vocabulary
and to use "free software" instead.
"open source" is too ambiguous as we don't know if
you refer to the old definition or to the OSD.
