A free as in freedom GNU/Linux distribution, that takes all the non-free blobs out of a rather popular distribution.
http://cdimage.gnewsense.org/ (now with BitTorrent)
Our LiveCDs mean that you can try out gNewSense off a CD without installing it on your hard drive. To install once the LiveCD is booted, make sure you have 5GB of disk space free, and click on the Install icon.
www.gNewSense.org , along with bugs. and wiki. now have a new look, following work by the gNewSense web team. It is the Maguila skin, customised slightly for our usage.
We hope you like 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.
