I don't have much so I didn't test it in deep, but at first sight it
doesn't look good:

* It comes with third party repositories enabled by default, including
ubuntu and medibuntu, which both contain many non-free packages.
* Installing linux-image or any other kernel flavour replaces the
default linux-libre with the vanilla kernel, complete with firmware.
* It comes with a package called "non-free-codecs" preinstalled.
* It comes with "jockey", an utility to install proprietary drivers.
* The official repository seems to lack the source code for most of
the binaries on the live cd.
