Thanks. I'm personally very pleased with the way Uruk is
presented. The translations are also impressive, I can tell the
Italian one is of good quality and I think is a great project to
introduce people to Free Software.

Also is very inspiring to know someone in Iraq is doing all this, for
so many reasons. It is empowering and it leads to excellent materials
for self-taught education, which is something even more precious in a
war zone. With the collective we worked with the Iraqi
Linux User Group back 10 years ago, until it existed, in contact with
Bassam Hassan &co
I now wonder if we had any contact with Ali back then.

Every distribution, if well made, is a curated environment introducing
people to the ethics and aesthetics of Free Software. This
consideration is also not directly connected to the theme of being
100% free, but just like other distros with sound ethical goals as
recycling old hardware, Uruk GNU/Linux deserves our attention, advice
and understanding, IMHO
