Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y And over the weekend, the saga regarding Canonical, GNOME, and KDE has continued. Lots of comments all over the web, some heated, some well-argued, some wholly indifferent. Most interestingly, Jeff Waugh and Dave Neary have elaborated on GNOME's position after the initial blog posts by Shuttleworth and Seigo, providing a more coherent look at GNOME's side of the story.

There are all ways to create drivers using the stable kernel to user-space interface. Now the question becomes why do you need a Kernel ABI in the first place other than the Userspace one?


Education. But I do not think that Hardware manufacturers are ignorant of this information. I am not a developer of this level not to mention being a driver developer, but why is it that most Printer/Scanner/peripherals etc have no Linux driver by default, if they can write it easily using the userpace without touching GPL?
