      I had to look twice to see what was wrong

        Finally!!!!!

        Even Apple noticed the huge benefits of multiplied network throughput and seamless roaming between 3G/Wifi/Cable.

          Very keen to see this trickle down to Debian and my pinephone.

            Pretty sure RH's interest in the backport is for their customers large DC solutions, where 100/200GbE NICs are the sweet spot (400/800 GbE NICs are still somewhat niche solutions), but higher network performance is required.

              Yeah, but it's pretty crucial to have the public servers have that too or clients can't use their own multipath-TCP capability.

              That said, afaik Windows does not support it (obviously, why would it?) so it's probably not that important for public servers right now.
