SubjectRe: [ck] Re: Linus 2.6.23-rc1
Date
Up till now i haven't read the interview with Linus.

> [2] http://www.oneopensource.it/interview-linus-torvalds/

It is interesting, he mentiones a lesson to learn from Microsoft:
"'Well, historically, the most important lesson from Microsoft - and one they
themselves seem to have forgotten - is simply 'Give your customers what they
want'."
But as i see all the discussion here that's what's _not_ being honored. People
request swap prefetch, it wouldn't be hard to give it to them but they
probably won't get it (or it takes a 5 days, 200+ messages discussion(in the
ck list alone were already 190 messages posted about this)).
Give the people plugshed so everyone can happily be using SD instead of CFS -
no way!
There sure are more examples to be given.

Dirk.
