Actually Free Software isn't known as Open Source software at all.

Open Source is about the techincal and economical superiority in the development model. This is what ESR oulines in the Cathedral and the Bazaar.

Free Software is about the moral and ethical right to run, copy, distribute, study, change and improve the software. This is why FSF created the GPL and GNU to promote it. Notice dependency there, GNU was created to promote GPL not the other way around.

Two completely diffrent beasts.
