Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Yesterday it finally landed. Gabriel Burt, one of Banshee's
maintainers, merged in the GIO/udev hardware backend that Alan
McGovern and I have been working on. This is awesome for everyone.
Here's why it's awesome for you.
"Are you a user?
* More reliable device detection (maybe, we hope at least!)
* More devices supported, including your iPhone or iPod
"Are you a distribution?
* No more HAL dependency! You can finally actually drop HAL from
your iso and ship the best media player Gnome has to offer (sorry
Rhythmbox- we just rule really hard)."
