Trisquel GNU/Linux 6.0

Rubén Rodríguez Pérez has announced the release of Trisquel GNU/Linux 6.0, an Ubuntu-based distribution that uses strictly free software only (as defined by Free Software Foundation's guidelines): "This long-awaited release is based on Ubuntu 'Precise', and as usual it comes full of free software goodness. We continue to provide an easy-to-use classic desktop experience complete with full-featured browsing, office, communications and social networking utilities. New features: Linux-Libre 3.2, Abrowser 19, GNOME 3.4, LibreOffice 3.5. Our web browser without a name (Abrowser, a Firefox derivative that does not recommend non-free software) now comes with shiny new features, like full HTML 5 video support (webm, h264 and other formats) that allow to use sites like YouTube without a flash plugin. This version can also show PDF files without a plugin." See the release announcement for further information and a screenshot. Download: trisquel_6.0_amd64.iso (696MB, MD5).
