If Ubuntu makes GNUbuntu completely free (as in freedom), and uses
separate repositories, I intend to use it.  It would be a bit ridiculous
to use a redistribution that changes nothing but the artwork just so I
can say they don't separately distribute proprietary software.  That's
just needlessly fragmenting the community.

However, for now gNewSense is definitely my best free option and I am
very grateful for it.
