Linux-2.6.33-Libre Released

The Free Software Foundation Latin America has sent out an announcement for its 2.6.33-libre kernel distribution. "Linux hasn't been Free Software since 1996, when Mr Torvalds accepted the first pieces of non-Free Software in the distributions of Linux he has published since 1991. Over these years, while this kernel grew by a factor of 14, the amount of non-Free firmware required by Linux drivers grew by an alarming factor of 83. We, Free Software users, need to join forces to reverse this trend, and part of the solution is Linux-libre, whose release 2.6.33-libre was recently published by FSFLA, bringing with it freedom, major improvements and plans for the future." Many words are expended on their motivations and methods, but they don't get around to saying where to get the package; interested users should look over here.
