      still no kdbus

      Unfortunately, it looks like the third version of the kdbus patch series will not be included with 4.0. Bummer.

              Wasn't the AMDGPU driver supposed to be merged in 3.20/4.0? I haven't heard anything about that in a while.

                By 4.1.15 live patching should be stable. Humans are no longer needed to press the reset button. Systemd can take over the planet and rename itself to something better-sounding.

                  Why this name was a big marketing success. It did send the message that this people seem to have fun and not are frustrated by using their os, thats nice advertisment

                    Pretty sure someone of devs recently (like 1-3 weeks) commented that they never said when exactly driver will become publicly available.
