An anonymous reader writes "gNewSense, the fully-free GNU/Linux distribution sponsored by the FSF, has released a 2.1 livecd (torrent). Since the last release more non-free binary blobs have been removed, new artwork has been added and lots of other improvements have been made. It's also two years since the first edition of gNewSense, and in that time an impressive ten livecds have been released! gNewSense 2.1 DeltaH is based on Ubuntu Hardy, and removes non-free software that other distributions don't. Try computing freedom today!!"

gNewSense 2.1 release interesting (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 4 years ago | (#24730247)

it is interesting to note that a lot can be done from within the FSF guidelines, given the momentum of GNU/Linux these days would there be value in distros dropping the incorrectly applied binary patches to their kernel, where there is no "easy to edit" corresponding parts
