Free Software is defined by the FSF, and others, as a thing, Software
with licensing that promotes its hacking and using, and the
redistribution of such.
Open Source is a term created by the OSI which I believe might be
trademarked, which is a marketing concept to promote certain free
software, and some not so free software as well (although I doubt that
was the intention).
Free Software requires freedom. Open Source is a concept focused on
source code access...which is not a guarantee of software freedom.
