F/LOSS is pulling the Open Source into the Free Software world, which 
RMS has strong philosophical views about. His diatribe at 
http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/open-source-misses-the-point.html gives 
you an idea on the matter.

Talk about Free Software or GNU all you like, but don't bundle OSS with 
Free Software in teh same sentence.
