gNewSense is a 100% Free Software version of Ubuntu. It is currently based on Dapper. I have tried it recently and it pretty much has the polished feel of Ubuntu, but with confidence that there is no proprietary software and components involved anywhere. According to the FSF's press release it is now backed by FSF which pretty much ensures that it will live a long life and possibly progress pretty fast.

Free GNU/Linux disks!


FreeLinuxDisks.org has been founded to offer free GNU/Linux CD's to anyone who needs it which are usually those who are still on slow connections and hence aren't able to download CD images directly off the net, and might find it too cumbersome to order CD's (not everyone has a credit card or a PayPal account).

It looks like a great way to promote and spread the use of GNU/Linux. The project needs help though in form of contributions (including donations) or if you have something to advertise sponsorships. You are encouraged to spread the word either by word of mouth or linking to it from your blog using one of these buttons. And of course, a good way to help get the word out is to digg it.

Get GNU/Linux!


I just want to recommend a great new site that has been started recently: http://www.getgnulinux.org/ (Get GNU/Linux dot org). Be sure to remember that URL and refer it to everyone who is looking for a place to find out more about GNU/Linux. Finally there is a "homepage" of our beloved Free as in freedom operating system.

And what's best, it's started by people who really care about Free Software and GNU/Linux.

I absolutelly digg it! Eye
