Has anyone tried Ututo GNU/Linux distribution? It is a brazilian gentoo-based distro that includes only Free Software both in it's repositories and CDs and is endorsed by the Free Software Foundation.

I thought I might give it a try since it should be easier to install than gentoo, but still have all those gentoo traits. Might be interesting.

ISO's are around 650 MBs though which is about 6 hours download for me.

So, what do you think of it if you tried?

If your looking for a fully free GNU/Linux distro you might also want to check out BLAG which is reconmended as free by GNU.

Thanks dylunio. I'm looking at their site..

Onlinebacon, I am not sure how many users they have, but being a distro often exclusively mentioned by RMS I guess they have some exposure. They were also reviewed by newsforge last year.

Ah. OK, I would try it out, but they have no sparc version Sad

I bet there's not many distros with sparc support so far, but if more people jump to sparc like you did that may change.

I think debian supports sparc normally, among many other archs.

Btw, I might not be trying ututo afterall.. It seems I'm gonna settle with Arch. :-)
