Linux As we all know, Mac OS X has support for what is called 'fat binaries'. These are binaries that can carry code for for instance multiple architectures - in the case of the Mac, PowerPC and x86. Ryan Gordon was working on an implementation of fat binaries for Linux - but due to the conduct of the Linux maintainers, Gordon has halted the effort.

its a shame to see Ryan Gordon's talent not be put to good use anymore for the project, i can understand why he wouldn't want to peruse it anymore. while it might not be "needed" it sure seems like it would have been appreciated and useful. c'est la vi.

OOT, but it's "c'est la vie". I could not find private messaging so here it is... public.

This is debatable: if everyone's toy feature makes it into the kernel then the kernel is called 'bloated'..
