Special Information

gNewSense is a Linux distribution based on Ubuntu.

Its goal is to maintain the user-friendliness of Ubuntu, but with all proprietary (EG. binary blobs) and non-free software removed.

The Free Software Foundation considers gNewSense to be a Linux distribution composed entirely of free software.

gNewSense takes a relatively strict stance against proprietary software.

The project was launched by Brian Brazil and Paul O'Malley in 2006.

Since the 1.0 release, the Free Software Foundation assists gNewSense.
