You don't need a form to apply a FLOSS license, simply chose one and
add a copy of the license to your code. Starting points might be

I don't know if you need to add the license as a comment on top of the
header files, as well as providing a license file or if just one or the
other is needed, but it shouldn't be hard to find out, when reading
about the licenses. To add a FLOSS license to your code, you don't need
to install a FLOSS operating system, but don't offend a
license, assuming you code should include code of others.
