Trisquel GNU / Linux

Trisquel GNU / Linux is a completely free GNU / Linux distribution, which is based on Ubuntu (14.04 for the latest version), and on the same principle as Parabola GNU / Linux and gNewSense. All the software that is included in the basic installation is completely free (The GIMP, LibreOffice, Firefox, etc.). It uses the apt package manager, from Debian, and uses most of the elements present in Ubuntu 14.04: the installer, some drivers, etc., while removing the non-free elements: the kernel containing proprietary pieces, the proprietary drivers as well as non-free software repositories, guaranteeing the user complete freedom.
