    Somehow that was also my first thought when I saw the "DNF" name: "Wow, who names their package manager Did Not Finish!". :p

    IIRC the Parted Magic developer used to contribute some code to GParted, but I'm not sure if he still does, or how often.

    Creating some simple types of software RAID from inside GParted should be possible, changing an existing one might be rather difficult (unless you can be 100% sure to...

    Depends... I think the creation of GEGL and porting of the core of the GIMP to it was slow because it's probably hard to work on that with a lot of developers at the same time, while most of the...

    He said it back in the days when BASIC dialects often didn't have any way to structure programs: no subroutines (so no functions, etc.) or only primitive ones, no variable scoping, no structured...

    I assume you never saw the BASICs from back when Dijkstra said that, or you never had to read or fix the spaghetti code that resulted from them?

    AFAIK, only some libraries will have to be rebuilt, and no (or almost no) applications. Unless they want to use new features, of course.
