FSF updates list of free GNU/Linux distributions
The Free Software Foundation (FSF) today announced updates related to its list of fully free GNU/Linux distributions, including the addition of one new distribution called Kongoni, and a milestone release of the Trisquel system.
Trisquel, which was added to the list last December, has issued its 3.0 release, codenamed "Dwyn." It is the first in a new series of short term support releases that will be updated every six months with new software to add features, improved performance, and hardware compatibility.
Kongoni, named after the Shona word for "gnu," is based in Africa. For optimal performance with minimal bandwidth requirements, it uses a packaging system called "ports" that downloads programs as source and builds them automatically.
Trisquel, Kongoni, and the other GNU/Linux system distributions on the FSF's list only include and only propose free software.
