Linux "There are plenty Linux reviews, though almost none of them are about Linux. You see, Linux is only a kernel, but most Linux reviews are about KDE, SuSE, the desktop and so on. Those reviews aren't about Linux, strictly speaking. In contrary, this review is about Linux, made for the people who normally don't configure and compile their own kernel."

"still, its not a perfect solution, i give you that. it would be nice if someone could come up with a way for the drivers to have their kernel interface be recompiled transparently when a new kernel got installed."

Debian does this with LIRC if I recall correctly, when there is a kernel update, the LIRC package will re-compile the modules for it. Though I saw it do this one time and it failed since I hadn't installed the proper linux-headers package as well. But the capability is already there with Debian via the module-assistant program.
