What is GNUnet?


https://gnunet.org/en/about.html

GNUnet is an alternative network stack for building secure, decentralized and privacy-preserving distributed applications. Our goal is to replace the old insecure Internet protocol stack. Starting from an application for secure publication of files, it has grown to include all kinds of basic protocol components and applications towards the creation of a GNU internet.

It seems to be another an alternative to RetroShare, but RetroShare is GPLed software, so someone thinks GNUnet is different in some way.

Maybe they are technically related in some way?

It often seems to me that people "reinvent the wheel" when it comes to software like this. Still, I2P, ZeroNet, IPFS, and Tor all have different strengths and weaknesses. Perhaps there is some significant difference in the way GNUnet works, compared to Retroshare.

Somewhat contrary to the spirit (and efficacy) of Free Software.
