Trisquel GNU/Linux flies the flag for software freedom

Filed under

Trisquel is a 100 per cent 'free as in free speech' GNU/Linux distribution started by Rubén Rodríguez Pérez nine years ago.

"It started as a project at the university I was studying at. They just wanted a custom distro because... everybody was doing that at the time!" Pérez says.

"Since I'm very stubborn, the project kept going," Pérez adds.

The idea of software freedom – the kind of freedoms Richard Stallman laid out in the GNU Manifesto in 1985 and the original GPL in 1989 – are central to Trisquel. (In 2005, when Trisquel 1.0 was launched, GNU founder Stallman was part of the occasion.)
