Linux-libre

Linux-libre's mascot, Freedo (or basically a chillax Tux who give no fux) and the GNU head.

Linux-libre is a modified Linux kernel created by the FSF Latin America. It removes all non-free components and binary blobs of the Linux kernel. It officially joined the GNU project in early 2012.

Usage by distros

By default, Most (if not all) FSF-endorsed distros have Linux-libre as their default kernel. However, some distros such as Arch Linux has Linux-libre in the AUR. Gentoo has an option to deblob your kernel when you build it. Debian, while doesn't use Linux-libre, the kernel is deblobbed by default, making it somewhat similar to Linux-libre.
