Good morning
I don't think which gNewSense is for newbies, I recommend Trisquel in this situation, but I wish welcome to you and good luck in the GNU Camp as a new Free Software user of GNU with Linux operating systems.

Assunto: [gNewSense-users] gnewsense desktop

- Does that computer boot with gnewsense Live-DVD 3.1 to desktop ?
- Does that computer boot with gnewsense Live-DVD 4.0 to desktop ?
- Does that computer boot with Trisquel Live-DVD 7.x to desktop ?
- Does that computer boot with Debian Live-DVD 8.x to desktop ?

In each case, if not, what is the exact error message or point when boot
doesn't progress?
