Nice description of Free and Open Source Software (and the distinctions between Free Software & Open Source Software, and why they matter), and the opposite: proprietary software: https://www.techworld.com.au/article/664904/what-open-source-software-open-source-foss-explained/ (here's why I think proprietary software is inherently undesirable: https://davelane.nz/reflections-proprietary-software )
