Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre distribution has been accepted by the Free Software Foundation (FSF) to its list of 100% free software distributions.
After several months, Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre, a distribution based on Arch GNU/Linux and with the stability of Debian, is now part of the list of free distributions being endorsed by FSF.
John Sullivan FSF's executive director, said about it:
In a world where proprietary operating systems continually up the ante in terms of the abuse they heap on their users, adding another distribution to the list of fully free systems is a welcome development. Hyperbola represents another safe home for users looking for complete control over their own computing.
André Silva, Hyperbola co-founder and developer, said about it:
Hyperbola is a fully free distribution based on Arch snapshots and Debian development without nonfree software, documentation, or any type of support for the installation or execution of nonfree software. Unlike Arch, which is a rolling release distribution, Hyperbola is a long-term one focused on stability and security inspired from Debian and Devuan.
Donald Robertson, FSF's licensing and compliance manager, added:
It was a pleasure working with the team behind Hyperbola throughout this process. They really go above and beyond in terms of looking out for the rights of their users.
Hyperbola is the first completely free distribution born in FISL17 (Porto Alegre, Brazil). You have more information on Hyperbola website, from where you can download the images to install or test the distro in "live" mode.
