Hi! I was wondering if Parrot is completely free and if it follows the Free Software Foundation guidelines. Because if it does, then it would be great to add it to the list of Free GNU/Linux distributions suggested by the FSF: List of Free GNU/Linux Distributions - GNU Project - Free Software Foundation
please have a look at this license file provided with ParrotOS…
