gNewSense is unique in that the distribution doen't exist to self-propagate. It was made to provide an example of uncompromising software freedom as well as a working distribution for those who hold software freedom as a prerequisite for ethical computing.

As for the reasons to face these challenges, they become clear when we say, we will not support non-free software. If all a user learns from their time with gNewSense is that some people care strongly about software freedom, that may get them to think more about it.
