Windows So, the Microsoft announcement - taking place as I write this, 01:45 in my timezone - turns out to be a bigger deal than expected. Microsoft just announced it's going full-on hardware - the company announced a new tablet called 'Surface', and boy, is this thing something to behold. Microsoft's hardware partners? They're not happy right now. Update: Here's Microsoft's official Surface site. I believe someone coined the phrase 'sexy as a succubus' in the comments about Vizio? Stealin' it! Update II: They aren't just taking the iPad head-on - this is a straight-up MacBook Air competitor.

Not that I don't agree with you.

But only one piece is missing from the mainline kernel, everything else has been or will soon be merged.

The missing piece is called WaveLock:

Wakelocks have always been at the center of the controversy. They're not a minor feature, it's an entire power management scheme.

I think I read about a month ago that there was movement again to a solution.
