FOSS means "Free and Open Source Software". It doesn't necessarily refer to
software created by some pure amateur in his garage. As long as the creator
(commercial firm, university or private individual) releases the source at
no cost, it is FOSS.

So far FOSS 'community' created nothing successful. Everything was
designed and implemented by real software developers or universities.
