Known Distros To Contain Pale Moon?

Post by 11ryanc » 2014-12-11, 00:23

Composing this thread out of pure curiosity, being a partial Linux user myself. Are there any known distrobutions that ship with this web browser as the standard? From my past experience, the majority I've come across use Firefox as the default. Occasionally Chromium. I've never seen a distro that uses PM. Now being open source, anyone can fork or create 3rd party builds. (Pale Moon licensing varying, of course)
Do any official releases, containing PM exist at this time?

At least Tahrpup
Actually had another thread about that and resulting redist license changes. Since I didn't hear of any other distro maintainers before then, I don't think others use PM as part of their distro packages. They do have this freedom now, though (provided it's fully open source and free).

I've actually come across quite a few Pale Moon users on Linux, single forum alone. So it's definitely not unknown to the Linux community. I suppose devs are accustomed to being Mozilla powered.
As far as redist license goes, I'll go have a peek at that now.
