There was an article about a replacement for the rtlwifi driver making it into 5.2 and only supporting PCI connected cards for now, as well as a mention that USB support would come later. It can't come soon enough

    Regression testing is nice, but sometimes running it right is better than fast. Too much work on fast code has been partly to blame for these security issues. There needs to be some balance between speed and security and these days CPUs are so fast that security needs to take precedence.

    100Gbit Ethernet... That's something only enterprise environments can take advantage of... Must be for data centers...

    I would only see myself going for 10Gbit SFP+ or RJ45 networking and that's about it until M.2 SSDs catch up and is more affordable, making hard drives becoming moot in the future. I'm hoping the gap between 2TB SSD and 2TB hard drive will narrow in the next few years.
