Debian and its clones Developer Frans Pop, author of debtree, posted an article showing the evolution in size of the GNOME desktop environment in recent Debian releases. The picture he paints isn't particularly pretty: the default GNOME install has increased drastically in size over the years.

OSX seems to be fine without it, but I'm sure OSX has some form of userland daemon doing the same thing udev does now, Maybe OSX doesn't need to do it because of the limited device compatibility? Either way, interesting read. Thanks!


It probably has. But anyway before udev, there was hotplug which handled — what I guess you are refering to — in conjunction with devfs.
