Is the armbian stretch system a free software system as defined by the free software foundation?

Prebuilt images provided at armbian.com - no, because they contain non-free elements: firmware in /lib/firmware and non-free (but not essential for system operation) packages such as iozone3.

Obviously those parts can be removed from an installed system at any time.

Thank you.

Are you saying I can install armbian and then uninstall non free software from the orange pi one computer and the computer

will still work?

Is there a script which will uninstall the non free parts or is there a website you can display which tells how to do it?

 

It is about installing freedombox.org on the orange pi one. Note I am not skilled on this matter.

I have chosen the orange pi one computer because it is low priced. I want the installation to

be a free software installation.
