What does FLOSS mean?
Free Libre Open Source Software
Why should I use FLOSS?
I would add also that, the use of FLOSS ensure your rights to Privacy and Security. If you use propietary software, you don't know what is happening behind the curtain, are they using my personal information? For what purpose? You just don't know.
People who say they don't care about privacy because they have got nothing to hide have not thought too deeply about these issues. What they are really saying is I do not care about this right. When you say I don't care about the right to privacy because I have nothing to hide, that is no different than saying I don't care about freedom of speech because I have nothing to say or freedom of the press because I have nothing to write.
