# <a name="The_GNU_Operating_System"> </a> The GNU Operating System
+The GNU Operating System, or GNU System as it is more commonly known, will be a complete Unix-like operating system composed entirely of [free software]( The creation of the GNU System is one of the goals of the [GNU Project](, which was [launched in 1983]( by [Richard Stallman](
It is our wish and goal to establish a new direction for the GNU system distribution. To that end, this page will begin setting some direction. This was spawned by several discussions over a few days on the Hurd mailing lists and IRC.
