Free Linux, Proprietary Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| There was a time when, if you wanted to be sure a Linux 
| distribution to work on any PC, you almost had to include 
| some proprietary firmware for graphic and Wi-Fi drivers. 
| Those days are long gone. Hardware component manufacturers 
| tend now to either include open Linux drivers or open up 
| their specifications enough that Linux developers can 
| created their own drivers. 



BLAG 90000: The Che Guevara Of Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| And isn't that another great thing about Linux - the freedom to choose?
| Finally, you know how on most Linux forums you are discouraged from posting
| anything which is even vaguely political?
| Well, the BLAG forum has a separate section for 'Politics', where rants and
| trolls are encouraged!


BLAG 90000 Powered by the Linux-libre Kernel

,----[ Quote ]
| BLAG 90000 (codename Chlorine) was announced two days ago by Jeff Moe. With
| Fedora 9 as its basis and a huge number of applications, released under the
| GNU GPL v3, BLAG Linux 90000 is a completely free distribution with all the
| tools needed for a desktop computer and more. It is also the first version
| that includes the brand new Linux-libre kernel, a Linux kernel with non-free
| software removed!



Interview with Jeff Moe: BLAG, linux-libre and More

,----[ Quote ]
| Jeff Moe is a 37 year old self-employed father. Better known as jebba, he is
| the main developer behind the 100% Free distribution BLAG (for BLAG Linux And
| GNU). He is also leading a couple of other Free software projects. He kindly
| agreed to give Blue GNU an interview by Jabber
| [...]
| Magic Banana: Mark Shuttleworth proposed to merge Gobuntu and gNewSense (in
| favor of the latter). Any thought to share with us on that?
| jebba: I did read his message. I follow gNewSense with one eye, but I haven't
| looked into Gobuntu at all so I don't have much to say there... Though, at a
| glance, a merge makes sense.


BLAG updates its Fedora-based distro

,----[ Quote ]
| The BLAG project released an updated version of BLAG Linux, build 50002,
| last weekend. The single-CD, install-only distribution is based on
| Fedora Core 5, and sports a 2.6.17 kernel and a GNOME desktop.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
