Trisquel GNU/Linux – a fully free operating system for home users, small enterprises and educational centers. Trisquel is derived from Ubuntu, but only includes free software. It’s free in the freedom sense. Users may run, copy, distribute, study, change and improve Trisquel (or any part of it).

The project began in 2004 with sponsorship of the University of Vigo for Galician language support in education software.
The project director is Rubén Rodríguez.

Trisquel editions are:

– Intended for home and office
– Ready for productivity, entertainment, networking, and more
– Runs a customized version of the GNOME Flashback desktop environment

Mini Trisquel:
– Intended for netbooks, older computers and a lightweight user experience
– Runs a customized version of the LXDE desktop environment

Trisquel NetInstall:
– More appropriate for servers or minimal systems
– A small download, text mode installer or with the command line interface and requiring an Internet connection to set up.

Trisquel Sugar TOAST:
– Intended for children and teachers
– Sugar desktop interface integrates collaboration, reflection and discovery.

Trisquel 1.0 was based on Debian 4.0 (Etch), but all next versions are based on Ubuntu.
In 2008, Trisquel was included by the Free Software Foundation (FSF) in its list of Linux distributions endorsed by the Free Software Foundation.

Trisquel GNU/Linux is still under development.

  1. I think somebody is pulling your leg. Trisquel is maintained, receiving regular security updates, and has an active peer support community and IRC channel. Trisquel 8 is actively being developed and those who are testing it have very positive things to say about it. Uruk

    Trisquel 8, codenamed Flidas, is downstream from Ubuntu 16.04 and upstream to the very promising and newbie friendly Uruk project.

    I hope this clears up the misunderstanding. I am typing on Trisquel 7, which I and my family use for our daily computing needs.

    • It’s only archived information and iso images of the latest version of the system, nothing else. I’ll be happy seeing newer images of the great OS and share informations about that to ours readers.
