3D News, GL, DirectX Yesterday, we reported on the statement several kernel developers had signed that urged hardware manufacturers to open up their Linux modules and drivers. "We, the undersigned Linux kernel developers, consider any closed-source Linux kernel module or driver to be harmful and undesirable," the statement read. Nvidia, which delivers probably the most prominent closed-source Linux driver, has reiterated its position concerning this matter.

The mouse is dieing, microsoft is dieing, apple is dieing, the PC is dieing, blah blah blah.

The mouse isn't going anywhere, any of this new tech is nowhere near the point where it is ready for main stream PC usage.

The article talks about trends, but there is no trend, Windows 7 is supposed to have multi-touch, but that isn't even going to be available until 2010, the iphone has multi-touch, but it isn't replacing PCs, it's a phone. Gestural computing? that's all we need, a bunch of cubicle workers waving their arms in the air like they just don't care...whatever.

Most laptop users I know keep a mouse in their bag just for long computing sessions. I think the mouse is going to be around for a very long time, it'll be like the floppy, living on for decades after being supplanted by newer tech.

I posted this to the article about the mouse, but it popped in here, I have no idea why. Please ignore
