Have you tried CloverOS yet?

It was a no go for me, but it might be fine for you.

Hyperbola, Uruk, Connochaet, and Freenix aren't on the list either. It's just slow. I'm running Hyperbola anyway, which is rock solid stable, but the packages might be too old for your own tastes.

Why was it a no go? And it doesn't sound like it filters out nonfree packages like Parabola/Trisquel do.

I just couldn't get it installed between stress and lack of technical knowledge. I was under the impression that it was similar to Trisquel as far as having its own repositories and was at least trying to be Free Gentoo.

Gentoo has a linux-libre package, which should be a good start. I believe you can also tell Portage what licenses to accept too.

Hell, even mint asks at install if you want to install FOSS or not, right?

The *buntus do that. I'm not sure if kernel blobs are included in that. They have four categories for software, and by default the installer will install the Canonical-supported free software and optionally the Canonical-supported non-free software.

Canonical desktop yes, but A.F.As Canonical Server they basically ship gnome.

gnome is the the benefactor of redhat.

thereby canonical supports proprietary redhat RHEL.

I would rather go with something like trisquel in future.

=============================================

I am just surprised that no-one has made this connection yet.

GNOME is not RedHat's benefactor.

sorry I was driving at the other way round. R(edhat gives money to gnome.)

but you seem yiddish - so I just won't answr any more.
