Re: The GNU list of 'truly' free as in freedom distros

You need(ed) to disable secure boot, probably.

You need to stop hijacking a discussion thread and start a support thread. This is impolite.

Well, it is Kolt's thread.  I agree the title and sub-forum placement don't make it a good place for a support thread, I don't know if it can be called hijacking.  It may be inappropriate repurposing at worst.

Re: The GNU list of 'truly' free as in freedom distros

Installed parabola one day on my laptop, wireless didn't work.. good bye parabola and hello arch linux once again. FSF is doing great but computer hardware is not ready for fully free systems. There are already fully free hardware computers out there but it's not as good in performance and user experience as a computer proprietary hardware is. I'd say that those GNU systems are really for those who take privacy to the core, and won't mind using a system that kills off a lot of features in order to preserve privacy. Like forget about youtube or anything related to google if you really want full privacy.
I try to use only open source software but I need skype, I came to arch because I want to be free to choose what application I install and to get away from microsoft's privacyless systems and gnu systems do make you free as in "freedom" but not free as in "choice" because there is countless of things that you won't be able to do because it violates your privacy.
