Cool.  Good article.  I'll see if I can wave it past some eyeballs.

I feel it could have mentioned that there are tech co-ops that support
Free Software (because we can... co-ops need autonomy as a point of
principle), to help users realise that even if they get stuck, they
don't necessarily have to rely on corporate control over their
technology from the likes of PCWorld (would they just reinstall
Windows anyway?).

But the New Left Project article is under a CC-NC licence, so maybe
there's some ban on commerce in it which I don't know about.  Although
it appears to be hosted at a big US corporation, which I guess is
bought, so maybe not. <fx:shrugs/>
