Inspired by a presentation by @aiscarvalho and @rlafuente, we ask you: supposing these 3 terms describe the same thing, which one would you prefer?

@lgm @aiscarvalho @rlafuente As designers, our work is maybe to coin a new term that is both accurate and communicative.

@lgm @aiscarvalho @rlafuente Anyway, as a person who often tries to explain F/LOSS design, I think the less worst for this task is “Libre Design”


@lgm personally, none of the propositions looks really good to me. Nobody around me uses the term F/LOSS, Open Source Design is already taken and Libre Design is not that catchy. still, the latest got my vote.

can we try to have something as catchy as the "Reclaim your Tools" that has been created for the LGM 2010?
