Slackware, Slax There are different reasons people use Unix-like operating systems, including configurable, availability free of charge, powerful command line interface an many more. Some people are motivated by the moral issue: they reject non-free software. Specifically for such users Free Software Foundation developed Guidelines for Free System Distributions and created the list of absolutely free ("as in freedom") distributions. In this article we are going to look at the most recent entry on the list - Parabola GNU/Linux.

The last I checked, it's possible to set up an Arch installation without the packages listed in the blacklist, and once the system is set up, no one is forcing you to install those packages... I appreciate people's concerns in regards to proprietary software, but do distros like this really solve any problem?
