So, after long time I have found real sci-fi... and yes, I enjoy it better than "Blade runner". It is CC-licensed, too :-). Second book is here, but starting with Starfish is probably better. Enjoy!
And... zaurus is now usable without X. As in -- you can actually use Fn-3,4 to adjust brightness and power button to suspend it... Only in git for now, and big thanks to metan.
