gNewSense is a fully free software GNU/Linux distribution based on Ubuntu which is in turn based on Debian.

Free software is software that respects your freedom. You can use it without restrictive licenses, make copies for your friends, school or business. To use free software is to make a political and ethical choice asserting your rights to learn and to share what you learn with others. It is built by people across the globe who work together as a community and sponsored by the Free software foundation (FSF).

We've decided to test out if gNewSense is going to work well on our laptops as a replacement for Ubuntu after the made the awful decision to begin disrespecting their user's freedom and rights by including spyware and corporate DRM software in their distribution.
