I may have been at that event -- and it was longer than a year ago (maybe
two?) -- because I remember that RMS said there were four distros that he
considered fully free. They were:

Ututo (Argentina)
gNewSense (Ireland) -- it seems that FSF and gNewSense work closely together
Blag (U.K.)
and a fourth one that I keep blanking on, but I would remember it if I heard
the name.

Of these, I've used gNewSense and it's pretty good -- if having a completely
and unequivocally free system is your desire, gNewSense is an above-average
