LXer: Following the unique way of Trisquel

Published at LXer:

There are different general directions in Linux distribution development, taking into consideration the dilemma of free vs non-free software. Some developers donít bother with this dilemma at all and include useful software in their distribution. Others do not turn off non-free software initially, but allow users to decide themselves. They place non-free and restricted software in separate repositories. And another stance is taken by developers who stick to free software only. The developers from this last group sometimes even get recognition from the Free Software Foundation, who include the distribution in the list of approved ones.
