              They backported the fix for the "ondemand" governor from the 3.12 kernel to the 3.11, which makes me very happy

                Now that you remind me of this change, I wonder if itís still useful/desirable to have custom values for the up_threshold and sampling_down_factor in order to improve responsiveness and frame-rate stability. I currently have 50 for up_threshold and 10 for sampling_down_factor. Just upgraded to Linux 3.12 on Arch Linux.

                  I believe they are talking about packages available in the installation media?! .... If we talk about openSUSE packages i will quote the build service:

                  openSUSE Build Service hosts 35,106 projects, with 231,888 packages, in 55,455 repositories and is used by 37,598 confirmed developers.
