    Otherwise it will be an OS just for iPAQs 🙂

    Hehe, really fast ones at that 🙂

    Oh, sorry i forgot they’ve got this real cool concept called shadowfs that will mean that we’ll all be sooo has-been with our traditional filesystem approach. It has the added advantage of giving them a built in 1gb disk limit work-around, to save having to fix the damn thing. And anyway, soon they’ll be switching to another micro-kernel that’ll mean we’re all just soooo has-been with all this GNU Mach stuff… and after all that, and a few bug fixes one day they’ll settle on what they want to do and do it, rather than wondering what they’ll change in 6 months time to make what they’re doing now stop working but make a whole host of other things oh sooo much better – and then all they’ll be left with is the implementation of it all.. which is only a small detail to most of them. 🙂
