Yes, it seemed reasonably sane up to that point. I was thinking about the Ben NanoNote, for example. But frankly I wouldn't want to agree to something that restricted my freedom to say what I wanted in an interview. Ooops, I just said my NanoNote "Debian" instead of "Debian GNU/Linux", now I have to go and peel off all those "approved by FSF" stickers....
I was also a bit annoyed by the FPGA and microcontroller exclusion:
"The exception applies to auxiliary processors or low level processors, none of whose software is meant to be installed or changed by the user or by the seller. This can include, for instance, microcode inside a processor, firmware built into an I/O device, or code compiled into an FPGA."
So is the FSF the "Free high-level software foundation" now? I'm thinking of one particular box that I have repurposed which has an ARM Linux SoC (oooops, sorry, an ARM BusyBox/Linux system), a PIC, and a Xilinx chip. I modified two out of three of them.
