Re: Is there any non free thing in Ubuntu Kernel

I'm optimist. I think one day we'll get Ubuntu without any non free

Thanks for every bodies reply. I just want to know that is Ubuntu ship
with non free? The answer is yes.

We can not go with out non-free software, we have to understand that.
Gobuntu is a backdated distro which is not maintain now. So there is no
option to use it.

So I think I we can have Ubuntu fork which has no non-free in shipment.
But it is not possible. :D

Not so!

Run the package, "vrms," on your box and see how close you are to
completely free and what to dump to be completely free.

Mine, for instance, has flashplugin-nonfree and the nVidia driver, both
of which it (and I) could do without.

Great package name "virtual Richard M. Stallman" but I don't think it's
that accurate. For example it didn't pick-up packages I've installed
from the partner repo - skype and adobe-flashplugin.

Either way I couldn't do without these packages and although I could do
without the others (MS TTF fonts, Virtualbox guest additions, rar/unrar,
AAC audio encoding) I'd really rather not. Not to mention that not
having the wifi firmware on my other computer (a laptop) would be an
instant deal-breaker.

I think we will get only free software eventually.
