    Oh... I do hope nftables isn't going away as some users here suggested. I've been using nftables for quite a long time. So long in fact, that I've removed the old iptables stuff from kernel.
    Yes. a Gentoo user here. Hi.

        first of all, thanks a lot for your comment!!
        I still have some doubts that I need to sort by myself, about this new model..
        I understand that its better to use less resources, if we can..

        But I don't really know the trade offs needed to achieve that..
        It could be that the new model is weird? I mean maybe complex, for the majority of situations, and in this case.. you end up creating something, that plays nice with 1% of the situations but in 99% of the cases, is not needed?

        I am just asking since iptables syntax is literally very simple, at least for this "99% use cases"..

          nftables syntax isn't that much more difficult for the simple stuff.

            I never fully understood iptables logic. But I really didn't use it that much since I switched to nftables quite early.
