Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

You are kidding? In Gnu philosophy, "How to disable Spywares into installed linux distribution" has nothing to do with Linux and neither GNU at all.
My point is simply, if random-youtube-commentator can figure out how to remove the "spyware" packages from Ubuntu, then I'm sure the developers of Trisquel figured it out, too.
By the way, the Stallman link you posted is old news from 2013. As of the year 2016, Ubuntu has disabled the controversial "spyware" by default, and it is now an "opt-in" service. Let's get our facts straight.
My first impression trying this on VM, it sucks. will not install, does not connect to the internet, does not see the Vhdd already set up and partitioned, .... one may get better luck on an actual PC, but in VM No GO, not here anyways.
interesting. Usually works well either way. One could also try stock Debian stable leave the repos at default and do not add non-free or contrib. That is pretty much free/libre. Only reason FSF does not endorse it is because the wiki tells you how to add these repos and they host non-free software in them.
