Submission + - Debian 6.0 To Come With A Completely Free Kernel (

dkd903 writes: The Debian Project has announced that the upcoming release – Debian 6.0 “Squeeze” – will have a completely free Linux kernel. This means that the Linux kernel which ships with Debian 6.0 will not have any non-free firmware. The Debian Project has been working on removing the non-free parts since the last two releases. With Squeeze, they are finally realizing that goal.
