For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "plasma-desktop" package and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

Personnellement j’utilise un ordinateur Thinkpad T400, doté d’un bios gratuit (libreboot) et d’un système d’exploitation libre ( Trisquel GNU / Linux ) dont je suis très satisfait, J’utilise donc du matériel non privateur (Imprimante, scanner, ordinateur) ainsi, je me sens totalement libre, au sens de la philosophie du libre. Il en va de même pour les logiciel que j’utilise qui sont non privateur.

trisquel is well refined, i try various linux distros on a old acer 5315, t8300 cpu, 3gb ram, even using this trisquel boots fast & i do mean fast, compared to the other distros i have tried , everything seems to run fast and smooth,no crashing or freezing, the browser is a modified version of firefox altered for more privacy.
if i had to sum it up pros> fast boot,fast running, browser with enhanced privacy,perfectly suitable for everyday os.

neg > this is being picky & a struggle if im honest browser still needs about:config settings altering for max privacy & correct addons added, firejail would be nice,as would macchanger to auto change mac address, other than that after downloading my vpn app i cant find a workaround for my vpn app cannot connect to daemon but thats down to the app (systemd) not trisquel.

My time with Trisquel has been great so far. The Ubuntu base makes it easy to use. The included MATE desktop is easy to use and configure. I haven't experienced any crashes yet, but sometimes the launchers on my task bar rearrange when I reboot.

Trisquel did support my WiFi card out of the box, but the included kernel was too old to support my GPU. It was very simple to install the linux-libre package to upgrade it. There is the standard set of applications included (the libreoffice suite, vlc, firefox, thunderbird, etc) that should be fine for most users.

I wouldn't recommend Trisquel to a complete novice, as there will be some issues you will have to troubleshoot, but it is one of the best fully free distros out there.
