Trisquel 4.0 LTS Review

[ Thanks to Jim

“There are Linux distros that contain some free
software and there are Linux distros that contain only free
software. Trisquel is one of the latter distros; you will find only
free software included with it. If you want proprietary software,
you’ll definitely have to look elsewhere. Trisquel is perfect for
Linux purists who only want truly free software on their computers.
If you aren’t sure what the term “free software” means, here’s a
good definition from the Trisquel FAQ:

“Free software, unlike propietary, is known to respect its users
essential rights, to ensure they can:

* run the program, for any purpose
* study how the program works, and adapt it to their needs (Access
to the source code is a precondition for this).
* redistribute copies so they can help anyone
* improve the program, and release their improvements (and modified
versions in general) to the public, so that the whole community
benefits. Once again, access to the source code is a precondition
for this

including an explanation of where its name comes from:”
