Trisquel 3.0 STS Linux (Dwyn)

,----[ Quote ]
| Pros: 	Includes free software only. Easy install. Good selection of 
| software.
| Cons: 	Somewhat unattractive desktop theme and wallpaper.
| Suitable For: 	Beginner, intermediate or advanced Linux users.
| Summary: 	Trisquel Linux is best suited for those who prefer not to 
| have non-free software included in their desktop distributions. Beyond 
| that much of what it offers can already be found in other, better 
| known distributions.
| Rating: 	3.5/5



Trisquel 2.2 Is Based on Ubuntu 8.04 LTS

,----[ Quote ]
| The Trisquel GNU/Linux team announced yesterday the release of Trisquel 2.2,
| codename "Robur." This is the third and last maintenance update for the
| Trisquel 2.x LTS branch, tracking the releases of Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron, on
| which it is based. However, this Linux distribution doesn't use Ubuntu's
| package repositories; instead, it hosts its own, with all the non-free
| software removed.


Published Trisquel 2.2 Robur

| A renewed download page is on the way -to make better use of the new US
| mirror hosted by the FSF-, and a mirror selector was added to the package
| manager too. The FSF is also helping us with the documentation, to make
| possible their server migration to this release of Trisquel.



Why Having 500+ Distros is a Good Thing

,----[ Quote ]
| Perhaps next time the author might think about what they're
| saying...because limiting the number of distros out there is
| absolutely NOT the way to go to accomplish anything other
| than limiting innovation.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
