A GNU/Linux project, to take all the binary blobs out of a rather popular distribution and make it all free.
Download It And Try It Before You Install.
http://cdimage.gnewsense.org/ (now with BitTorrent)
Get your single CD for installing or trying it out as a live CD. A live CD does not install on the machine unless you choose to do so, as a result you can try it before you install it. To have a reasonable install we suggest about five gigs of space should be made available.
To create gNewSense we needed to have produced a set of scripts. This building method we called Builder and these scripts allow anyone to to build their own distribution. Try it here: create a GNU/Linux Distribution. This is not how you get gNewSense, for that follow the download link above, but you can do this if you want to see how we did it.

There have been yet more Builder/gNewSense updates. The update process was automated a week ago, and this process now has two levels of monitoring. We're also now monitoring mirror freshness.

There are now -backports and -updates components. I haven't tried them out fully. There's also a number of general updates.
