Linux-libre project meets rocky reception

linux-libre is very important because it highlights to the users what is truly open source and what is binary blobs. It's very important for anyone concern about security since you can know exactly what is in the code.

I hope this will drive people to make more source available under the gpl and encourage the Linux developers to give users an easy way to compile a truly gpl compliant kernel. If you care about choice you should support linux libre as it gives you the choice not to be spoon fed mysterious binary blobs. If linux libre did not come around, we'd probably be asked to use more and more blobs in are supposedly free software.

Support truly free software today so users have the option tomorrow! The free software movement has history on our side as one by one the the software of convenience on linux has given way to FOSS!
