I've just realised that tomorrow will mark the 2 year anniversary of our
first release.
Accordingly, it's somewhat appropriate that our 10th LiveCD is released

It's strange to think that it's well over 2 years since Paul and I started
gNewSense. While I remain the main developer; many other people have
contributed code, and many many more time and effort, to ensure that this
distribution stays free and usable. We were the first for example to remove
all non-free blobs from the kernel and also the first to remove GLX. Through
all this work we have produced what is, to the best of my knowledge, the
freest GNU/Linux distribution in existence.

I'd like to thank everyone for their help and support thus far, and look
forward to the future of gNewSense.
