SubjectRe: tux officially in kernel?
The problem with X15 is that it's unavailable.  I've tried for months
and months to get someone at that company to respond or get a copy to
try. Also, is it GPL? Free?

For me, X15 are three alphanumeric characters.

I'd love to try it, though.

As for TUX, I would certainly prefer user-space if it was indeed as fast
in all cases. But I don't think X15 is really a factor in TUX's
inclusion. I'd say replacing khttpd with TUX2 is a no-brainer unless
X15's performance has been proven and it's GPL. And while khttpd is an
interesting example, it really rocks at small image serving. I've had
it in production since 2.4.0-test1.
