Ohai. I love this artwork -- understandably, as our organisation is named Free and Open Source Software Foundation. I took the liberty to modify it a bit, by making the "keyhole" outline follow Tux, and using the Polish translation of "FLOSS". Of course, proper attribution is given in SVG's metadata. Of course it's CC-By-SA, but nice of you to ask. ;)

Thanks for the link. It's great to see derivative works for any of my artworks.

I had to log in here just to answer moshpirit's question.

It means: Free/libre and open source software. It's a term used by people to address either both movements or to show their neutrality between the two movements, that is, ones neutrality towards both the free/libre software movement, and the open source software movement.

Either for a free/libre software enthusiast (like me, :D), or for an open source software enthusiast, it's great to know people who are transitioning between the two.

Free Software - That software is important to users and their software should be owned by them and not companies. With the ability to control any aspect of it.
Open Source - The idea that by working together we can make better software. Even rival companies can work together on the same project.

Send in a photo! :-)
