Gobuntu – a variant of the Ubuntu distribution without some not entirely free applications. Created to use only open source programs and distribute them free of patents and other restrictions.

Gobuntu is a new flavour of Ubuntu that is aiming to apply the strictest possible interpretation of the Free Software Foundation’s “Four Freedoms” to all content, both code and media, on the disk. The Gobuntu install disk should include nothing that is not modifiable and redistributable, and for which source elements are not available in their entirety. For example, if a PDF is on the disk, then the original document should also be available with modification rights.

Gobuntu 7.10 is the first version of Gobuntu, released on 18 October 2007.
The last version is 8.04.1 released July 1, 2008.

The project has merged back to mainline Ubuntu, so there is no need for a separate distribution.
