General Development In the dawn of the renovation of freedesktop.org's web site, David Zeuthen announced the release of HAL 0.1. HAL is an implementation of a hardware abstraction layer, as defined by Havoc Pennington's paper. It encompasses a shared library for use in applications, a daemon, a hotplug tool, command line tools and a set of stock device info files. Carlos Perelló Marín also announced the design of a similar concept, but it is expected the two projects to merge. More people are encouraged to join this innovative project. Elsewhere, Gnome's Seth Nickell is giving us a first taste of his effort to replace the Init system.

he hangs out in #gnome on gimpnet and trolls. he also happens to think that gnome should follow his vision, rather than the gnome devs.

all i have to say to him is: Look here buddy. You don't like it? Don't use it. SystemServices is just another choice. HAL is another choice. YOU WONT BE FORCED TO!. Fool. It's trolls like you that piss me off, and rob me of much OSNews.com joy.

Almost every post of yours can be reported as 'trolling'.
