Yes, finally, the loooooooooooong development cycles of Patrick Volkerding and his crew are finished! And we have a completely new stable-branch, version 13!
Filsystemet (engelsk wikipedia-artikkel) ble utviklet av Bill Gates og Mark McDonald i 1976/77 som hoved-filsystem for IBM PC-DOS og Microsoft DOS, og senere som tillegg i Windows (helt opp til versjon 'Me').

[The whole point of the venture is to spur tele-carriers to improve the security-flaws of their respective service protocols. The bug Nohl is talking about in the link at the end of this post, has been known for over 15 years! So.., covert cellular surveillance has probably been going on for years by now...]
What's holding the app back for the iPhone, is telecommunication giant AT&T. Because, in the U.S., iPhone was not offered by any carrier except AT&T. Sending text messages, listening to voicemail, calling, etc. can ALL be done through Google Voice, bypassing the normal GSM telenetwork infrastructure, and instead, sending the data as TCP datastreams over Internet connections. So.., AT&T is *NOT* happy about ISVs developing software that unifies all their own lines of services in one package, utilizing free-flow data-connections to transmit, instead of their own service-dependant charged mobile carrier lines.
Thing is, I didn't pay much attention to which type of kernel the old one got replaced with. Patrick Volkerding (BDFL @ Slackware) announced on the Slackware security-list that slackers would have to re-generate the ramdisk image for the new "generic SMP" kernel before re-installing bootup.
The ramdisk image contains the (un)loadable driver-modules for the linux-kernel, which includes the ext3 filesystem and it's debugging facilities.
Seems I'll be doing some tinkering and modification when I get home from work today...

It seems I actually learned something when I studied commercial/illustration/design-subjects @ school back in the day :P both my domain and my sub-domains receive approximately the same pagehits and referrals ;D the hits were actually just about even too between them! Awesome! :]
"De fleste hardwareleverandørene har, på et litt dypere teknisk nivå, nesten alltid et forhold til Linux fordi operativsystemene tradisjonelt sett har hatt god rot hos utviklere og driftsfolk. Selskaper som Cisco og IBM bruker også Linux som primæroperativsystem for å kjøre utvikling og testing."

I've started a new subproject for myself, where I go image-scavenging on the world-wide-web :P and I found a post on linuxologist.com linking to an artist named "~Gegege-no" on DeviantArt.com who made this awesome piece called "Ubuntu Linux", or as titled on the blog where I found it: "The Ubuntu Rider", which I think is a more suitable title ;)

I'm sorry to say (not really, but I'll get into that later) that this looks like the last month I'll be working @ my current job.
I can honestly say I'm sick and tired.., nay, PISSED OFF at people with over-exaggerated opinions of themselves, driven only by their enormous power-seeking egoes...
Kind of a blessing in disguise if you think about it =)
