    I see no source code available. Personally, I wouldn't touch it.
    He who works with his hands is a laborer.
    He who works with his hands and his mind is a craftsman.
    He who works with his hands, his mind, and his heart is an artist.

    I'd rather clean latrines in the armies of Heaven, than be a general in the armies of Hell.

    Never tried that distro, but it's based on Debian, so it's a known quantity. Should be familiar to anyone who has used Debian or Ubuntu. http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=gnewsense

    Parabola is a 100% free Linux system. And gnewsense is preparing to release a 100% free Linux system.

    Free is good <cough>Richard Stallman<cough>, but proprietary drivers are even better.

    Question encrypt /boot or not?

    Debian , fedora and other distractions can encrypt the disk. But the /boot partition will not be encrypted. Are there any machine usage or history stores into the /boot partition? Will hacker search the /boot partition to find our secret?

    Encrypt /boot partition or not?
