    Phoronix: The Linux 3.7 Kernel Is Going To Be A Beast

    The Linux 3.6 kernel isn't even one week old, but the Linux 3.7 kernel is already looking very exciting with enough changes for an open-source enthusiast to be giddy...

    Exactly who is stopping you from using PPA's?

      Linux kernel 3.7 is great for ARM.

      Personally, I would like to see the nouveau driver support Wayland.

          I love the clever comments of people using non-rolling distributions bitching about their distributions not being rolling...

            smap - a cloud feature?

            smap - is it a cloud feature?

            Enabling cloud service providers to be undeniable ethical to customers?

            All left-over interventional kernel functions into user-virtual space are unmutable logged by journald?

              Will this be the good one?

              How many times I read this one? "the next kernel will boost your GPU" and, kernel after kernel, the performance is more or less the same, and the new incredible features will be "merged in the next version". Always the next. For years.
              Why are you so sure the 3.7 will do the difference?

                Why don't people set up separate /home partitions?

                I've always done this, and from what I experience this whole "rolling distribution" vs "non-rolling distribution" is a nonsensical argument.

                Format the / partition, and when the "new" operating system comes up after installation it inherits all of the prior settings that still reside in /home. It takes minutes to select the various apps I use, and the let the computer do all the work installing. Done. Now I'm on the "new" operating system, and it's a clean install which is good to do every now and then anyways.

                What am I missing?

                  Probably better to be non-rolling than my Arch install that bricks itself every month - till I fix it manually!!

                  New kernels meh...

                    I never have issues with Arch. I really wonder what people do to their installations...

                    And new kernels are a must-have for those of us with new computers. When I made the jump from 3.1 to 3.4 in opensuse (before I used arch), it was a night a day difference.
