I think this acronym has absolutely no advantages. 

There are people out there talking about "Free Libre Open Source
Software". Others use it as "Free Linux Open Source Software".  And I
there some people who use FLOSS software, where I do not have a clue
what the last "S" stands for.  So what is it good for?  To clean your
teeth after meal, but that's it.
