My last report of OLS:

  • Greg's keynote told us that binary kernel modules in the kernel are illegal.
  • Dave Airlie's presentation about driver has an epilogue, or when ATI cannot review 600 lines of code in 4 month. It is just a repeat of the talk, but in writing. Let's hope AMD-ATI merger will change things in the right direction.
  • Samsung experiment putting Linux on a Digital Still Camera, and they consider that it fits the bill. If only we got better Linux support from them. They are the second company to publish something like that after Ricoh in OLS a few years back. Still no real product though.
