Hi everyone,

Good news: DistroWatch has officially recognized the FreedomBox
      operating system as a distribution of Linux! This means that
      FreedomBox is now listed in DistroWatch's authoritative database
      of Linux and BSD distributions. It's considered a rite of passage
      for an operating system to be listed on DistroWatch. And
      FreedomBox has finally gained this honor!

One thing stands out to me about this news: this is a win for
      Debian Pure Blends.


Though FreedomBox is now listed as its own distribution on
      DistroWatch, we remain committed to Debian and our status as a
      pure blend. Indeed, FreedomBox is not the first Debian pure blend
      to be listed on DistroWatch: Debian
        Edu/Skolelinux has also been listed. The fact that pure
      blends are successful enough to achieve distribution status in
      their own right is a testament to Debian's strength as a stable
      base of software packages. FreedomBox is proof that you can build
      a fully-functional, specialized operating system without ever
      leaving the Debian ecosystem. I view our listing on DistroWatch as
      more proof that it is possible to succeed as a pure blend, despite
      the challenges.
