Submission truly free gNewSense available as preinstalled OS

sick_soul writes: It seems that the FSF has finally found some truly free distros to endorse, and is now announcing that Los Alamos Computers offers laptop and desktop machines preinstalled with gnewsense-2.0 , probably the most popular of these free-software-only distros. With some major hardware companies already preinstalling more mainstream distributions on consumer products, will these attempts face too much competition inside the FOSS community? Or is it sign that the values of software freedom and openness are becoming more mainstream?
