The BBS Scene and The GNU/Linux Operating System

BBSing would be a lot less amazing than it is without being available for GNU/Linux. This operating system has a similar philosophy as the rest of the BBSing Scene. Its all about freedom, freedom to code, freedom to copy, and freedom to distribute without cost. My personal favorite is Ubuntu GNU/Linux, as it has all the amazingness of Linux with the support for proprietary device drivers that allow nVidia graphics cards to work without any problems, and allows for proprietary graphics acceleration codes to be used. Really its the best of both worlds: that of freedom and that of commercial/industrial technology.
