Free GNU/Linux distributions

The Interopen Mirror is not responsible for the content of other web sites, or how up-to-date their content is.

If you know of a distribution that may qualify but isn't listed here, please ask the distribution's maintainers if they want to follow these free software principles. If they do, and they would like their distribution to be listed here, they should write to <gnu@gnu.org>. Some distributions are making efforts to move toward a completely free system. We thank them for their ongoing work to achieve that goal, and hope to list them here some day.

All of the distributions that follow are installable to a computer's hard drive and most can be run live. They are listed in alphabetical order.
