How "Free" Is Your Install?

Want to find out what percentage of your Ubuntu system is made up of “free” software and packages?

On my install, 1.0% of my total installed packages are not-free, meaning i’m 99% there!

Install VRMS with

  • sudo apt-get install vrms

then just type:

  • vmrs

into a terminal session and hit enter.

A list of your non-free installed packages will be listed, along with your “non-free” percentage!

So… What’s your score?



N.B. This is meant to be a bit of fun. Most systems have “non-free” software installed for things such as Flash, Graphics Drivers, etc
