Linux Plumbers Conference

I just got back from the 2011 Linux Plumbers Conference. Definitely glad I went. It's been a while since I've done any serious hacking on the Linux kernel, so there was a lot of learning on my part. I'm glad to see that there is still a lot of momentum and excitement in the community. It's also nice to hear people admit some of Linux's shortcomings, and more importantly, discuss ways to remedy those shortcomings.

The energy was inspiring, and some of the conundrums brought up have tweaked my interest. I thought I'd jot a few things down that I think might be worth revisiting, and hopefully I will get time to look into them in future posts:

I hope to delve deeper into these topics later; who knows, if I manage to scrounge up enough time, I might even be able to test out some solutions to them.
