	Just as a completely unrelated question, are you satisfied
	with your Think Pad? Does it work well with Linux? I mean, did
	you have to use any binary-only module (with the possible
	exception of PCMCIA) or does a stock kernel work fine with
	your laptop?

	I'm in the market for a new computer and I'm still deciding if
	I'll go with a desktop or with a laptop... I'm looking for
	something that uses only free-software, without third-party
	drivers and that has reasonable performance.

	Other opinions/experiences are welcome.
