And the next version of windows will have all the wonderful features that MacOSX has now so best not
upgrade to Mac as you can just wait for the next version of windows.

suspend2 has it *now*. It works, it's stable.

uswsusp is a great idea, really.. I love it.. but suspend2 is here, it works, it's stable and it's
now. Why continue to deprive the mainstream of these features because "uswsusp should".. as yet it
doesn't.. and when it does then we can phase out the currently stable, working alternative that has
all these features that uswsusp _will_ have, after it's had them for a year or so and its been
proven stable. Not only that, I'll be happy to migrate over to it. Until then however, you can pry
suspend2.. cold, dead.. blah blah..

Honestly, I have given up worrying if it's in-kernel or not. Nigel makes it so easy to apply the
patches to the current kernels it's a doddle in any case, however I'm sure it would be much easier
on everyone if it were in the tree.

Brad (suspend user since 2.2.17 - and suspend2 is a heck of a lot more reliable/usable than the
in-kernel version ever has been for me)
