I've been a free software user and hacker in the Free Software Movement since the mid-1990s. My primary computer runs the GNU/Linux operating system; it's a modified GNU system that uses the kernel Linux. I also run AMS GNU/Hurd. Please read more about the GNU Project and the Free Software Foundation.
gNewSense is a good choice to pick for a distribution of GNU/Linux because it has a policy to reject all non-free software. A freedom respecting distribution of GNU/Linux is important and there are others that are wholly free too; e.g. Ututo GNU/Linux.
