Dragora (officially known as Dragora GNU/Linux-Libre) is an Argentine GNU/Linux distribution[3] It is written entirely from scratch[4] sharing some similarities with Slackware. It has a very simple packaging system that allows installing, removing, upgrading and creating packages. Novice users might find Dragora a bit challenging.[5] It is one of the "entirely free GNU/Linux distros" endorsed by the Free Software Foundation:[6] it contains 100% free software and uses a Linux-libre kernel. Dragora is considered to be based on the "Keep it simple, stupid" (KISS) principle, believed by the authors to be a strength.[7] Dragora can be downloaded from the web site or bought on CD.[8][9]
