Zine Review of "Heartcheck" by Jeffrey Luers and Rob Thaxton
17 May 2005
Modified: 04:57:28 PM
"Heartcheck" zine, by political prisoners Jeffrey "Free" Luers and Rob "los ricos" Thaxton (both currently serving time in Salem, Oregon), is
an exceptional booklet of information, inspiration, and tactical insight.

BIG NEWS ON MICROSOFT: Slavery to It Is Ending
17 May 2005
The hundred-dollar computer proposed by the MIT Media Lab will be the end of Microsoft's dominance and possibly the company itself. Do you care? Can Wal-Mart beat Microsoft? Since you are reading this on a computer, you are a slave to MS and you should care. Freeing us from MS and its robber baron could raise the country's productivity by several points. I'll show how it. To have fun, usable, efficient computers, it is necessary. To finally realize the dream that Bill Gates aborted, we need a computer that is: Cheap----Instant-On----Simple----General Purpose. Only India has one, for $200 ("good globalization").
