gNewSense is a fully free software GNU/Linux distribution.
Free software is software that respects your freedom. 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.
gNewSense has a rich graphical user interface, a full office suite, plus web browsers, email management, instant messaging, calendaring and for developers — the full GNU developer toolchain, GNU Emacs, a variety of compilers, debuggers and more.
And because gNewSense is free software, you can use it without restrictive licenses, make copies for your friends, school or business.
It is built by people across the globe who work together as a community. We are open and anyone is welcome to join.
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.
