- I know GNUbg is mostly about Backgammon and very little about free
software - Yet, it would be nice to try and stay away from proprietary
formats like .doc files

- How strong is GNU?
  The recently released GNU 0.14 is 1.18% stronger than GNU 0.13.

   GNU is made of 3 neural nets: ...

I would think this is sort of "implementation detail". It would probably
make very little to the casual reader. Perhaps it should be relocated?

Here is what should be the final version. I'm short of time now so I'll
only send the PDF conversion to Nardy later. If anyone else prefers that
format, let me know. All of Nardy's comments were taken into account
(thanks) and I also added labels to the toolbar figure and I updated the
table of contents. If there are any errors, corrections, or omissions,
please let me know.
