wounded in the line of duty
OK, good to know.
Have you read Marks latest post ( http://www.markshuttleworth.com/archives/150 ).
I think there will be more streamlining between EntDistros. As far as I know they said so with the anouncement of the driver backporting stuff at the Linux fountation collaboration summit.
Makes a lot of sense to me. It would make designing and maintaining EntDistros much cheaper and It would help everybody.
Lets say 2.6.30 will be the first "driver backporting kernel" (DBK), which will be announced before all major distros release. Using that kernel would make a lot of sense for a lot of distros. When that happens using the same toolchain just comes natural .. might be the next DBK 2.6.35 that even the toolchain gets synched, but I think it will happen.
Canonical, Mandriva etc. and even Red Hat need to improve their products without spending more money and this is the way to do it.
FOSS is all about using what is already out there and improving upon that.
