Guess who this GNU is?

" Can your friends guess who this GNU is? One of the possible designer T-shirt for the EOMA68 libre hardware Crowd Supply campaign going on. It is inspired by a real-life person who now lives in Russia. I would like for people to guess who it is. And don’t give out any more hints! "


This inquiry was brought to you by a dear new friend on FaceBook.

It's NOT Jon "maddog" Hall 's face, is it?

It also looks like William Easterly, to me ... And to spoil original questioner's sincerity, how do " I" know that it isn't a piece of ME on that designer's T-shirt ? so what question will you pose in regards of that T-shirt pending design/image so that it grabs people's attention and curiosity ?

btw, this film review of 'I, Anna' is right on the mark for what I've seen and felt after my 1st viewing.

Both Barnaby Southcombe and Charlotte Rampling observe in the DVD commentary that the film was about two people who were “stuck in time and can’t move on.” I truly got that idea on my first viewing. That idea is there on the screen and in the performances, so my saying it is a story about “two lost souls” is really my reaction. They just agree with me. Or I agree with them.
A characters study must exist within a particular time and place, however, and that time and place for I, Anna is a present day brutalist world, with the Barbican in London as its real setting. Hence some of the “noir,” for this architectural labyrinth of tall cold buildings is the essence of the old-style “noir” environment–alienating, unwelcoming, and brutal. As an emblem for the society which Anna and Bernie must navigate, life could not be more disaffecting or disconnected.

Rhombus's vision is to make the guts of the computer into a swappable card, which you can upgrade easily when the new model comes out, keeping your keyboard/chassis/screen, etc.
