The objective of a free distro is to give freedom to the users. It is
archievable with linux-Libre. But most people that use GNU do not
consider it an important project because they think they do not use GNU
but that they use Linux. If there were a distro that used GNU without
Linux, this would dramatically change. If people would perceive they
used GNU instead of Linux, they would tend to give more weight to the
political opinions of the developers of GNU. Those opinions mostly tend
to be sided with freedom, regardless if it is the cheapest/best/securest
software. The final goal is for people to value their freedom more.
