gNewSense is a fully free software GNU/Linux distribution based on Debian GNU/Linux.

Free software is software that respects your freedom. You can use it without restrictive licenses, make copies for your friends, school or business. To use free software is to make a political and ethical choice asserting your rights to learn and to share what you learn with others.

Project status

As of 2019, gNewSense has not released in several years, but active development has restarted (very slowly), please read next steps for gNewSense to see where the project is headed, including merging with the Skeleton GNU/Linux project.

If you're interested in getting involved, please see our project wiki which has some information on getting involved, or join our development mailing list.

I hope to have a release ready in 2021.

Historical releases of gNewSense are still available and PureOS is also a Debian-based free distribution on the GNU list
