,----[ Quote ]
| Finally I did it.
| I decided to point to an higher goal asking Dell to produce a free
| software laptop.
| I made a campaign in english and italian inviting all the people to ask
| Dell for a machine with coreboot, atheros wireless chipset and gnewsense
| preinstalled.


Fellowship interview with Rolf Camps

,----[ Quote ]
| This month we've interviewed Rolf Camps about translating, volunteering, and 
| awareness of Free Software in Belgium. Translations are utterly crucial for a 
| European organisation, and it's a lot of work that doesn't get much visible 
| credit, so I wanted to ask Rolf about motivations and what's involved. This 
| is the second in our series of Fellowship interviews - "the smallest unit of 
| freedom".

| gNewSense DeltaH was released today, and we are pleased to offer
| preconfigured Workstations, Portable Systems, ThinkCentres, Laptops, and
| Servers, as well as fully customized Core 2 Duo, Athlon 64, Xeon, and Opteron
| computers, preinstalled with the latest gNewSense GNU/Linux operating system.
| gNewSense is a GNU/Linux distribution that is listed as free by the GNU
| Project.


Ultra-free gNewSense 2.0 beta released

,----[ Quote ]
| Brian Brazil and the team behind the ultra-free gNewSense Linux distribution
| have released a beta of the forthcoming 2.0 (or Deltah) series. gNewSense is
| based on Ubuntu but strips the distribution of non-free components to provide
| users with a truly free operating system. gNewSense is backed by the Free
| Software Foundation.


gNewSense 2.0 [Screenshots]

,----[ Quote ]
| Less than a week after the release of Ubuntu 8.04 LTS "Hardy Heron", the Free
| Software Foundation has gone ahead and released version 2.0 (named DeltaH) of
| gNewSense. For those not familiar with gNewSense, this is one of the few
| distributions certified by the Free Software Foundation as being a truly free
| Linux distribution. gNewSense 2.0 is essentially Ubuntu 8.04 LTS but with a
| few modifications to make it more free by removing some binary-only
| components. New in gNewSense 2.0 is also new artwork, switching the default
| web browser from Mozilla Firefox to Epiphany, Blag's deblob script in the
| kernel, and non-free GLX being removed from X.Org/Mesa. Here are a few
| screenshots from this latest release.



The Importance of the 'Completely Libre' Distributions

,----[ Quote ]
| What's more, I recently migrated a local user to gNewSense from
| his improperly-licensed, virus-ridden Windows XP system. I am due to follow
| up with him soon, so we'll see how his GNU/Linux eXPerience is going.
| Frankly, I'm pretty sure he'll agree that gNewSense is a great demonstration
| of the power of software freedom.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
