I’ve been reading an unauthorized biography of rms. Interesting. The guy’s so idealistic he still really, really annoys me, but he’s a typical, old-fashioned activist. Blaming an activist for being idealistic and unrealistic (and unreasonable) is like blaming a dog for barking. Yeah, it’s annoying, but it’s what dogs and activists do.
I’ve read the first two chapters earlier this week, but so far it seems to be pretty well done. I’ll be back later to read more, definitely.

It doesn’t seem to be as “configurable” as Netscape. I can’t get all my bookmarks to show up on one page like I can with Netscape. But I will try it for a while…
