=== What can you do? ===
 
 
 
# Get active.  Tell your hardware vendors you only want free, open source drivers and firmware
 
# Use your buying power and only purchase from hardware vendors that support their hardware with open drivers and firmware.  Refer to http://www.fsf.org/resources/hw for more information.
