Exept Ubuntu has ALOT of proprietary software too and a BLOB ridden kernel you wan't a FREE distro you should try Trisquel or Gnewsense which are both based on Ubuntu but without the non Free crap

I feel that freedom is more than just a license under which software is released. I respect what Trisquel and Gnewsense are doing but if they are removing essential closed source drivers from the kernel then they are making it harder for users to install and run the distro especially on systems with dedicated graphics. Surely 90% freedom and a 100% working system is better than 100% freedom but a 70% working system. People value ease of use much more than freedom and until freedom doesn't mean compromising on ease of use people will always pick ease of use. Anyway choice is what matters and as long as we have that we have no reason to really complain.

There is no such thing as being 90% free (and for that matter no such thing as a 100% working system) either your in control or your not and someone else is, 10% leaves alot of room for spying and backdoors... as for the drivers which ones are you refering to? NVIDIA/AMD GPUs? or Wifi/Bluetooth? I use a GTX 560ti in trisquel with the Free/libre Nouveau driver and while the performance isnt the same as the binarys from nvidia they are more than functional as for wireless there a good number of WIFI cards that run on libre software these days and Linux users should not be shy about researching their hardware before putting a PC together were not dummies lol...... or you could simply use a USB dongle (inelegant I admit but easy and maybe the cheaper option in most cases like when you install GNU/Linux-libre on an old windows Pc)......now with all of that Im not saying running Ubuntu is the same as Windows or Apple since Trisquel is basicly Ubuntu's libre spin I'm just saying its not the Freest distros out there and for some of us that still matters

I did this before the new icon was released and to be honest I preferred the old one it seems less generic and glossy compared to the new one.

Yes, a lot of apps indeed. But you evidently included apps that are not open-source is basically, not free.
I'm agreeing with ~theRealPadster. ;)
When I saw Quake 2 I almost shatbricks, then I realized that it isn't free.
