Trisquel GNU/Linux flies the flag for software freedom

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.)

By software freedom “we mean the basic liberties the software user should have: those of using, studying, improving and sharing the software without limitations,” Pérez says.
