General Development In the dawn of the renovation of'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.

What the hell is "educated trolling?" Either I'm right or I'm wrong.
You're usually right about most stuff and I actually like reading your posts a lot (you and rajanr are great posters ;) , but when it's something about xfree or anything that involves responsiveness you tend to bend the truth, however this time you were pretty obvious: compiling koffice while browsing the web while uploadind 10gb of mp3 to your ipod and: "GUI responsiveness hasn't suffered at all"??? What's next? you also play quake2 while doing all that?
