Free Software Foundation

   Abbreviated FSF. An organization founded by Richard Stallman that develops the freely available GNU software.
   The FSF philosophy is that all software should be free for everyone to use and that source code should always accompany the software. The theory being, that if you make a modification or fix an error, the change can be sent out to all the other users, saving time and preventing duplication of effort.
   Also, any software developed under the FSF General Public License (GPL) must also be covered by the same terms of the GPL; in other words, you cannot use the free software to develop a commercial product for sale.
   For more information on the Free Software Foundation, see www.gnu.org/fsf.
