I've just realised that tomorrow will mark the 2 year anniversary of our first release.
Accordingly, it's somewhat appropriate that our 10th LiveCD is released today.

It's strange to think that it's well over 2 years since Paul and I started gNewSense. While I remain the main developer; many other people have contributed code, and many many more time and effort, to ensure that this distribution stays free and usable. We were the first for example to remove all non-free blobs from the kernel and also the first to remove GLX. Through all this work we have produced what is, to the best of my knowledge, the freest GNU/Linux distribution in existence.

I'd like to thank everyone for their help and support thus far, and look forward to the future of gNewSense.
