ewwfs is pleased to introduce this unofficial gnew resource, based entirely on speculation, rumour and hearsay.
unofficially, work on gnew began around early 2021.
gnew is about three things: freedom, education, and fun.
gnew stands for "generation new".
its motto, taken from tony benn, is "encourage, educate, and agitate".
gnew aims to reduce reliance on the "web", promoting peer-to-peer (p2p) technology as the primary method for file sharing and distribution. bittorrent is the preferred p2p protocol.
literate programming is used to help with teaching, documentation, and building programs that people can easily study. noweb is the preferred literate programming tool.
"less is more" moves to "do more with less".
gnew exposes "magic search terms" that buzzwords make hard to find.
other potential goals include:
* removing reliance on perl-- haskell as an alternative
* a lightweight, sandboxable alternative to the typical "web browser"--
for a gateway into the "web"
* independence from packaging regimes (distros)
* a fork of noweb
