    Hi! You don't mind if skip the "blabla" part, do you?
    I also hope you don't mind a few questions.

    How about a Phoronix article comparing backup solutions for Gnome and KDE that are being actively developed?

    Like Back-in-Time, TimeVault (active?), sbackup, git :-), etc...?

    This is why it won't be used by humans a lot I think.

    In fact, next release should also include xorg.conf.d and a lot of functionality Xorg configuration was missing. So it will for example be...

    As far as I know complete removal is not planned atm. For example Debian enables udev and disables hal only for Linux (you can see that in the debian/rules script).

    I'm using latest Xorg from Debian/experimental (or git, don't know) which starts to use udev only.

    I had to recompile a few packages and get NetworkManager 0.8rc but ultimately I was able to...

    Well, I wouldn't call myself a fanboy, but I'm impressed by the great support they provide (e.g. via bugzilla).



    Speaking of 2.7 test release:

    I don't think that upstart could optimize the boot process on my system a lot. If you look into Debians init-scripts you most likely will notice...

    To actually access /etc/shadow Grub has to access the root partition. And, guess what, that requires _some_ services and drivers started.

    Yeah, sure. I meant you need to integrate it into your boot process - which means SysV for Debian and Upstart for Ubuntu.

    I'm using recent drivers/kernel/xorg with modesetting and GM45 and most of the time TV-out ends up being detected and set up as active. That confuses GDM and Gnome completely (first won't...
