If it's not 100% free and open, this man is not interested!

I am using a Lemote Yeelong, a netbook with a Loongson chip and a 9-inch display. This is my only computer, and I use it all the time. I chose it because I can run it with 100% free software even at the BIOS level.

Until I can have them both, freedom is my priority. I've campaigned for freedom since 1983, and I am not going to surrender that freedom for the sake of a more convenient computer.


A netbook? As your main machine? That's hardcore. Although he does note at the end:
I do hope to switch soon to a newer model of Yeelong with a 10-inch display.

Oh dear.

That's a pretty cool laptop I must say but only the cult followers would use such a thing! s**t I bet is hard as hell to do even the simplest of tasks.

If he really cared, he'd do something other than starting a "movement".

*points to GNU*

I'm surprised he uses a keyboard with a Windows logo on it! (unless I'm looking at the wrong model)

Dunno which model is right, but this one here has a home directory symbol.

Ahh, I was looking at a smaller-res picture, and it looked enough like a Windows key that I figured it was. Nothing gets past Stallman.

Frickin' e-hippy.

Might as well not use a cell phone and a credit card.

I'd be surprised if he did. Last I heard, he doesn't even use a web browser, he just uses wget to fetch pages! (I'm not even kidding about that ...)
