Dragora GNU/Linux-Libre is an Argentine GNU/Linux distribution[3] It is written from scratch[4] sharing some similarities with Slackware. It has a simple packaging system that allows installing, removing, upgrading and creating packages, although the system may be challenging to new users.[5] As it only packages free software and uses the Linux-libre kernel, the Free Software Foundation endorses Dragora.[6] 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]
