Freedom is not about things, which we do often, but freedom is about
things which we can do when we want (or need).

Yes, you are right, i builded my last custom kernel cca 2 years ago. This
kernel is compiled with small size and memory requirements in mind. This
kernel (for my custom PXE backup tool) is still working for me. But when
there will be needing for new HW drivers, i will must to compile new one.

Some of my friends are often speaking about free (open) HW. I was joke
from them in past, but now i understand their ideas.
