   Here, I mean the free and open the same way I mentioned.

   Why the split, FSF and OSI? OSI is free, but why FSF is not open?

Open source software is not free at all in many cases.  For example,
the Microsoft Shared Source License is a non-free license, but it is a
Open source license.  It is a non-free license since it disallows
commercial distribution.  There are more such examples, see for a list of licenses
which are free and which are not.
