    Cisc, with regard to the firewire driver-did the Linux guys 'pay a billion dollars to Apple' to get their firewire stack working? Did every Linux guy send Linus a hundred bucks so he could buy the rights from Apple to get the firewire ports woken up on their hardware?

    AFAIK it was a sponsorship, like with bluetooth (there are a lot of companies that use Linux in their embedded devices and need support for these things), even then Linux firewire support is somewhat limited...


    We're already living with what is essentially a beta snapshot, so why can't we have a more official, newer beta snapshot to massage for a few more years?
