Use a distribution which makes efforts to only include free software.

http://www.gnu.org/links/links.html#FreeGNULinuxDistributions with
explanations and reasoning here:

I am using gNewSense as well as Fedora, Debian and until-recently
Ubuntu, on my personal machines.

Only free software is not there in every distro yet, but I am quietly
confident that at least there people in the Fedora and Debian projects
working to getting their distros on that list too.
