The Free Software Foundation endorses few operating systems, directing interested parties to just a handful of GNU/Linux projects that follow a strict definition of supporting and distributing free software. The Trisquel operating system is one of the few projects on the FSF’s list of endorsed operating systems. The latest version of Trisquel is a long term support release, based on Ubuntu 14.04, and will be supported through to 2019. Trisquel strives to be as user friendly as possible while sticking firmly to the philosophy of free software. The distribution ships with a version of the Linux kernel that has been stripped of non-free components and is available in GNOME and LXDE flavours. Details of Trisquel’s latest version can be found in the project’s release announcement.

Since its based on Ubuntu it’ll have to go with systemd on the next release and since systemd adds a single point of failure and is controlled by Red Hat (whose main source of income is from US gov contracts) it frankly shouldn’t be trusted.
What we need is a fifth freedom, free from government intrusion. Considering all complaint about systemd are being treated like the person “just doesn’t get it” or strawman arguments from the designer, who acts like he is being gamergated just for having to answer questions? Honestly systemd should be as desirable as plague blankets and should NEVER be the default in an OS whose entire existence is based around freedom..
Considering 5 years as long term makes me smile. â˜º
