The Free Software Foundation (FSF) has released a new Linux distribution called: gNewSense.

Apart from the question of whether the world is ready for yet another linux distribution (which outnumbers the total of web frameworks, all languages combined) I find the choice of name pretty strange. With some fantasy you could speak it like: "Gnu-sense", but that can be quickly misunderstood for "Nuisance".

In that respect, the name is chosen correctly: with all proprietary code removed from the distribution, the distribution can only be regarded by the casual (non-Free software ideologist) as a nuisance. I applaud the effort of the FSF for making a completely free operating system though, and I wish them well.
