    Taiwan -> Taiwan 

    Although 'Republic of China' also shows on my passport, but we wouldn't 
    mind leaving the 'Taiwan' standing for us.

    I voted for President Ma. But that does not mean what he says is
    abosultedly right. That's the progress of democracy.
    Since here is neither WHO nor WTO, and obviously we commiters in Taiwan
    contributed lots to the FreeBSD project.
    Please. Thank you for respecting our culture :)
    And thanks god
    said so.
