Hardware, Embedded Systems What laptop does Richard Stallman use? A Dell, HP, maybe even an Apple? No - RMS uses a rather odd laptop, a netbook powered by the Chinese Loongson processor: the Yeeloong, a completely Free laptop. From BIOS to operating system, this machine is completely open source. Wired is running a very interesting article on the Loongson processor effort.

If people want a centrally planned society... well... this is what we get... and I'm just going to have to contribute my 2 cents to at least make sure they build it right (which means taking into account industry).


As a capitalist system, the United States is a "centrally planned" society too. Wall Street, the Fed, CFR, WTO, centrally plan America's economy and to a large extent the world's economy, and have vast influence over unemployment, interest rates, real estate prices, wars, oil prices, etc. etc. They control the White House and Congress, making sure no challenges of this central power system may succeed.
