Our current title. Decently catchy, generally well understood. Some FSF supporters might think it excludes them, but we will explain carefully in the description that it doesn't.
A downside is that it sounds at first to be limited to software. This isn't perfectly the case - some other things also have source files. Again this can probably be ...
Free, Libre & Open
Basically the same as F/L/O, but with less slashes. (TimPost suggested "Libre, Free & Open" but I think the words flow better in this order.)
@ArtOfCode suggests "Free/Libre & Open"... write in the comments which you prefer
The best solution is "FLO" as in Free/Libre/Open (it can be spelled out that way with the slashes too). It's the adjective part of FLOSS and it doesn't spell out a known word, so it's a unique and recognizable term. "Open Source" is largely software-specific, so if we want to cover beyond software, FLO is the best overall term.

I disagree. With a scope that is ever changing, it is pre-mature to request name changes.

Why Open Source Misses the Point of Free Software
The term “free software” is prone to misinterpretation: an unintended meaning, “software you can get for zero price,” fits the term just as well as the intended meaning
We are trying ...
Free & Open
(as originally proposed by curiousdannii and highly upvoted back then)
This Stack Exchange site is about all things free and open.
Why would it need to be “free & open something”? Adding a noun changes the grammar and changes the interpretation of “free”. We want “free” to be understood as in freedom, not as in free beer. This works ...
Something creative for the title
Look at Seasoned Advice, Arqade, and indeed the original Stack Overflow. These are interesting names that create their own sense of community, independent of any philosophical disagreements chefs, gamers and programmers might have.
Something simple and inclusive for the URL
Seasoned Advice is simply cooking.stackexchange....
Free/Libre & Open Source
"Free/Libre" gives clear idea that we are talking about free as in speech or freedom
"Open source" is about production and development model.
Things to note:
When above terms are applied to software, It becomes Free/Libre Software and Open source Software.
This community is not limited to software only (not ...
Free & Open
Just putting it here to see how it fares. If the SE staff deem to explain in detail why they think it won't work (such as whether they tested the name in context or out of context) then we can consider what they say then, but until then, lets keep it in the running.
