Free GNU/Linux distributions

This page lists theGNU/Linux配电装置,配电装置entirelyfreeas in freedom。非GNU-based基础系统分配are listed separately。

The Free Software Foundation recommends and endorses these GNU/Linuxdistros,althoughwe do not try to judge or compare them based on anycriterion other than freedom打开;therefore,we list themin alphabeticalorder。

事故distros are ready-to-use full systems whose developers have madea commitment to follow the自由系统分布指南.This means they willinclude,and propose,exclusively free software。They will rejectnonfree applications,nonfree programming platforms,nonfree drivers,nonfree firmware“blobs,”nonfree games,and any othernonfree software,as well as nonfree manuals or documentation。

If one of these distros ever does include or propose anything nonfree,that must have happened by mistake,and the developers are committed toremoving it.If you find nonfree software or documentation in one ofthese distributions,you can出口,出口,出口,出口单击功能区上,while we inform the developers so they can fix the problem。

We hope the other existing GNU/Linux distributions will becomeentirely free software so that we can list them here。If you wish tofree distros,helping to develop an existing freedistro contributes more than starting a new one。

Please note that not all hardware works in the free world;eachdistro's site should say which hardware it supports。We suggest that,after reading the short descriptions below,you consult these sites aswell as other available information,to judge which distro is mostconvenient for you。
