What is Blag?

Blag is a 100% free GNU/Linux distribution, which means that it features only free (libre) software - in the live cd and in the repo - according to the Free Software Foundation definition.

Among the main differences between Blag and other GNU/Linux distributions, Blag features a special Kernel, from the linux-libre project which doesn't include any non-free firmware. It also uses Icecat instead of Firefox.

Blag is Fedora-based, but provides more content by default : you may find some new software in the repositories like educational softwares, games, newer version of some existing softwares.

Finally, Blag is not just only a GNU/Linux distribution. It's also a political, philosophical and technical community. All of its members work to overthrow corporate control of information and technology through community action and spreading Free Software.
