>the decision about ACPI would not be made by Linux developers or ARM; there is a large company in Washington that will determine that

I'm pretty sure this preterition suggests I should know which company it is, but I'm afraid I need to be enlightened on that.

Ah, sorry. The large company in Washington (aka "our friends in Redmond") is Microsoft.

Ah ok, I thought they were based on the west coast, that's probably why I didn't think of them.

Heh, there's more than one confusion I've perpetrated here :)

Washington is also a large state in the northwestern part of the US and Microsoft is based in Redmond, Washington.

Obviously, some of these US-centric references don't really "translate" well, I'll try to keep it in mind in the future.

Hmmm, I'll just consider I gained some general knowledge.

And by the way, as far as I'm concerned, no need to change anything. That's the tone I'm used to and that I appreciate. No need to plane down any cultural difference.
