Break Free with gNewSense 2.3

The Ubuntu-based gNewSense is sponsored by the Free Software Foundation and is released without any proprietary or non-free components. This means no restrictions are placed on usage or sharing of gNewSense. The same can’t be said for Linux distros like Ubuntu and Debian. gNewSense is an exact snapshot of what free software has to offer. To achieve this gNewSense comes stripped of Ubuntu logos, proprietary firmware, and restricted modules.

Although I’ve reviewed several Ubuntu-based linux distributions recently(moonOS, Mint7 XFCE, & others) I feel like gNewSense is on a whole different level due to its free software status. Many users will pass over it because it consistently favors compliance over ease-of-use and usability. More and more newbies are coming to Linux for a solution, not because of their morals and beliefs about software. While I’m all for finding solutions, remember that the freedom to share is what got us this far.

I installed gNewSense and have taken these screenshots to share in hopes a few users will give it a shot.

    I think that this is probably the next distribution I give a shot, but if they remove all the binary stuff, how does one go about using something like a intel wireless card or nvidia graphics?
