Hi Fernando, Jann, Heiki,

Thank you for commenting, you had very valuable points. I implemented
some changes (the ones that made sense to me).

A few words about Fernando's message:

Welcome and thanks for your contribution!

I chose to use "heavily restricted" in the new version. What do you think?

Valuable point, I added your sentence.

> 5th page:

Mh, this is a long debate... I also like information society but digital
society is what is used everywhere on the website fsfe.org "Free
Software Foundation Europe is a non-profit organisation dedicated to
promoting Free Software, working to build a free digital society." so
I'll stick to it for now

Did I miss something?

Thank you again,
