GNU, GPL, Open Source "When Richard Stallman learned that a compiler architect from ATI would be speaking at MIT, he immediately started organizing a protest against ATI's damaging free software policies. It all started, like most good protests, with a trip to Kinko's printing to make a sign. The request came from Richard Stallman for a 3'x2' sign, mounted and able to be carried with one hand easily. Several frustrating minutes with Inkscape, two trips to the store and one foam-core backing later, we had our sign, and it stated our message clearly in black letters on white background."

Thom I think Rms is aware of that fact about Bios much better than you are. Check FSF and see the related articles. Rms _has_ a problem with closed source Bios too. Again check fsf.org please and while you're at it stop this `Hey Richard' attitude. It's not becoming for OsN staff.
