IMHO it's mostly a matter of lack of modularitation (or we could say lack of deeper code refactoring too). Almost all of networking stack in Linux that I know (Novell's I-forgot-the-name, token-ring, Mac I-forgot-too) are switchable. -- regards, Mulyadi Santosa Freelance Linux trainer and consultant blog: the-hydra.blogspot.com training: mulyaditraining.blogspot.com _______________________________________________ Kernelnewbies mailing list Kernelnewbies@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx http://lists.kernelnewbies.org/mailman/listinfo/kernelnewbies
