I think this is nice idea, but i am afraid noone will find this page.

Nicolaus: can we have link straight on gta04.org?

I think having good reasons listed somewhere visible is needed, because on 
mailing lists are discussed mainly problems.

Here are mine:

* no online accounts and registration required
* offline gps navigation and dictionaries
* all applications are free and open source
* fast processor and big RAM is not needed - we have fast non bloated software
* long term support - freerunner is after 4 years still actively supported 
* gta04 kernel is exceptionally good - most of drivers are in mainline kernel 
and gta04 kernels are updated with every linux release
