To adepts of HAL, D-BUS and complexity: be happy, it's all crap anyway

Linux

Linux is already "the next Windows": unnecessarily complex, and therefore buggy.

The dilemma To 5.1 or not to 5.1? came after More adventures with StartCom Enterprise Linux AS-5.0.1, which in turn came after some Troubles with StartCom Enterprise Linux AS-5.0.1, which followed a restless history of distro-hopping, which only seemed to end into a RHEL5 clone.

RHEL5 clones work reasonably well, and when they work, they're stable. Now that Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.1 was released, and StartCom was the first (currently, the only one) to have rebuilt a trademark-clean clone, I noticed that for the time being, there is at least one difference between "5.0 + all the updates" and "5.1": a new kernel (kernel 2.6.18-53) that is not present yet in the updates repositories of CentOS, Scientific Linux and X/OS. Some other differences might also exist, but I simply don't want to dig into that.

And 5.1 is breaking something that worked with 5.0.
