      Don't bother with this if you want a true libre distro. Wait for Trisquel 8 which will be based off of Ubuntu 16.04: https://trisquel.info

              Indeed, especially because Trisquel 6 and 7 are still supported, unlike GNewSense which hasn't been supported for 5 months now.

                When it comes to software, I want my freedom to come for free.

                  Is it just me or does gnewsense sound dangerously much like (g)nuisance?

                    "Why the name gNewSense?

                    The name originated as Gnusiance as a reference to RMS's GPG key, but was later changed to gNewSense by bbrazil and ompaul to also capture the New Sense of the distribution and as a pun on GNU." http://www.gnewsense.org/FAQ#Why_the_name_gNewSense.3F
