Free/Libre and open-source software (FLOSS) (FLOSS): Free/Libre and open-source software (FLOSS) is software that is both free software and open-source softwareTemplate:Efn where 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. This is in contrast to proprietary software, where the software is under restrictive copyright licensing and the source code is usually hidden from the users.
