Oh the power of weblogs. Entertainment Weekly ran a poll of most popular actors, and Wil Wheaton, who played Wesley Crusher on Star Trek (not to be confused with Wesley Felter), was a top vote-getter. Why? He's got a blog, of course. And if you haven't heard yet, so does Ru Paul. Who's next?

Put up a web page and list all the products that are not open source and do not come from Microsoft. Categorize. Link to their sites so people can find out more. This is invisible software, to many. The list will be huge. Like this or this.)
