I hope it will become more real in the not too far future. But up to then, 
it's not perfect, but already usable with Mach (and it offers some very nice 
features like nsmux and unionfs :) ).

I'm glad you like it! 

I wrote it a few years ago, when I was mostly fresh to free software and had 
just taken several deep dives into the story of what happened at MIT. Then I 
read Otherland and doing a story in slightly australian myth style just 
grabbed me :) 

And it's also quite fascinating for me to see how easily parts of the history 
of free software fit mythologic storytelling. A story from the dreamlands 
seeps into our reality and makes us travel the land with the firefox, talk to 
friends via the thunderbird and meet many more mythological beasts (though I 
use KDE and only turn to firefox when I can't konquer a website :) ). 

Best wishes,

Ein Mann wird auf der Straße mit einem Messer bedroht. 
Zwei Polizisten sind sofort da und halten ein Transparent davor. 

        "Illegale Szene. Niemand darf das sehen."

Der Mann wird ausgeraubt, erstochen und verblutet, 
denn die Polizisten haben beide Hände voll zu tun. 

Willkommen in Deutschland. Zensur ist schön.
