Free Software

Free Software is software that may be used for any purpose, processed and disseminated in it's original or modified form. This also includes commercial use. Software that comes on the basis of this software, you usually has to be free software as well (the principle of copyleft and share alike).

Free Software is opposed by the proprietary or "non-free" software that provides these freedoms or not in its entirety. This distinction was coined by the Free Software Foundation (FSF).

Freeware

In the English language free means not only "free" but also "free". English-speaking developers and activists decided to make the distinction with free as in freedom and free as in free beer clear. With free software (original printed in English: free software) refers to "free" on the first meaning, the freedom for software users. One of the freedoms guaranteed includes being allowed to sell free software at any price. A portion of the licenses of free software includes a copyleft regime (also known as share alike), which means that the freedoms may not be restricted in the dissemination of the software.

Freeware by contrast, refers to the second meaning, "free". This software does not vacate the user by the Free Software Foundation liberties listed. Therefore, it is not considered as "free software".

Open Source

Open Source refers to the fact that the source code of a program is EXPOSED. Not only is the program distributed, but also the source code is compiled on the basis of the program. Anyone who knows the source code can also modify it and write new programs. The knowledge of acquaintance of the source code is important to ensure that software can be freely distributed. Technically speaking, free software and open source are very close together, but both terms are used by different schools of thought. The term "open source" was developed and introduced by Eric S. Raymond, Bruce Perens and Tim O'Reilly, the founders of the Open Source Initiative (OSI). They believed that the vexed issue of freedom might deter potential donors for such projects. Therefore, in the presentation of the open source movement the freedom that free software gives users was not mentioned. It was stressed that open source software leads to better and cheaper applications than closed, proprietary designs.

The Free Software Foundation, however, believes that proprietary software must be refused on moral grounds alone, even if it would be better than open source. Software should be transparent and verifiable. Richard Stallman from the FSF rejects the term "open source" and the underlying personal standpoint.

Nevertheless, supporters of both camps are working together on projects. The GNU GPL is the most popular license even for projects that are dominated by open-source supporters. Compromise alternative terms such as "Free / Libre Open Source Software", which are accepted by adherents of both positions (including Richard Stallman) show the aim of highlighting the similarities. The term "open source software" appears with the emphasis on the superiority of the development process, while the term "Free Software" also includes the views of other users.
