What is Trisquel

Trisquel GNU/Linux is a distribution of the GNU operating system, with the Linux-libre kernel.

Trisquel comes ready for home and office use, and new programs are easy to find and install. Trisquel Documentation will help you explore your options.

Trisquel is free. We mean "free" in the freedom software sense. Free as in freedom of speech not as in free beer

Trisquel community supports freedom, accessibility, and education. Trisquel users may, with any part of Trisquel, or even all of it:

   Audit / Study / Modify
   Copy / Distribute
   Distribute modified versions

These freedoms are prerequisites for users' liberty, privacy, and market freedom.

Accessibility features are an important part of Trisquel's standard edition. Trisquel manuals are screen-reader friendly; Trisquel also offer a series of helpful audio guides.

The Trisquel operating system is available gratis (free of charge). If you have questions, please ask Trisquel helpful Community.
