    Hey, Linux has about 90 boolean config options (guessed, not counted).

    If poor Linus has to combine all 2^90 config options (my calculator
    can't display that number) and test them, don't you think we would
    still be waiting for 0.99.10?

    (Of cause: he has a bloody fast Alpha machine now - but is it really
    that fast?).
