gNewSense is derived from Ubuntu Linux, and has most of the same functionality. However, it removed all the non-free blobs from distro i.e. it only ship with free and open software. It has no proprietary modules or software:

* 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

  1. The link to download is pointing to this page. Does not take you to the actual download site.

  2. I don’t get the point of this distribution.

    How is this different than

    Hurd?

    OpenBSD?

    A new orthodox church?
