beranger.org: That's here: FSF Campaigns: High Priority Free Software Projects. And I don't see any vision at all, but mostly politics.
tommorris.org/blog: On Sunday, I purchased an Acer Aspire One - a 120Gb Linux machine in 'Sapphire Blue'. Ever since some of my friends started using Asus Eee machines, I'd been thinking about buying a 'netbook.'
