Financially Independent Retire Early. It's basically the goal of everyone on this forum. FI gives you the option to RE if you choose.

Here's a handy link
* Acronyms and Slang Frequently Used on the Forum *

You'll find lots of subtleties when you read the posts... people use just FI for financial independence, ER and RE tend to be interchangable... Then there's SIRE - for those without the big savings but with nice pensions (secure income retired early)...
