coreboot users: if you're using tar to generate GRUB's memdisk image, with
latest svn you need to include tar.mod instead of cpio.mod.
The DRM opt-in fallacy: "Your data belongs to us. We will decide when (and
how) you may access your data; but nobody's threatening your freedom: we
still allow you to remove your data and not access it at all."
