stylus, which would get lost pretty quickly otherwise. (Suggestion
for whoever designs the next Openmoko Pouch: Include a small pocket or
loop on the outside for a stylus.)

will make using your Freerunner easier and more enjoyable. You may
also want to join a local Linux User Group (LUG). Here are some
