Optionally Free Is Not Enough

Item posted by Jason Self <jxself> on Fri Oct 5 22:40:46 2012.

The Free Software Foundation recommends that you use a free GNU/Linux system distribution, one that does not include proprietary software at all. That way you can be sure that you are not installing any non-free programs. Here is the list of FSF-endorsed GNU/Linux distributions: http://www.gnu.org/distros/free-distros.html

Some GNU/Linux distributions allow the user the option of installing only free software. You can read RM's new article about why being optionally free is not enough: http://www.gnu.org/distros/optionally-free-not-enough.html
