''The main version of the Linux kernel that is being maintained by Linus Torvalds, Andrew Morton, et al., contains proprietary code in the form of binary blobs and firmware with available source code but not under a free license, so in the interest of freedom, we maintain GNU Linux-libre, in which this proprietary code is removed, so that it is entirely free software.''
