* Firmware removed from kernel in main
* Builder, a tool to produce a distribution
* Restricted removed
* Ubuntu logos replaced
* Universe enabled by default
* emacs, bsdgames, nethack and build-essential part of the default install

    I don’t get the point of this distribution.

    How is this different than

    Hurd?

    OpenBSD?

    A new orthodox church?

    Debian? If it only has free packages, then it’s just debian…
