Ah, well, thanks. A little snippet to keep in mind for the future.
I'm a trailing-edge-of-technology kind of guy but I suppose when I
upgrade from Slack 10.1 to 12 (RSN) I'll go with a 2.6 kernel.
I'm reminded of a trip to NYC I made on a 305 Honda Hawk. (Yes, long
ago) For a while I slipstreamed behind a 40 foot trailer rig.
Unbelievably nice ride until I thought of what would happen if the
trucker hit the binders hard or skimmed over a $LARGE_OBJECT, leaving
me ca. 100 ms to avoid instant death. I don't suppose that aspect of
the metaphor applies to desktop technology. :-) In fact, it might be
just the opposite: if latest-gizmo, otaku hi-tech has some kind of
train wreck, I should miss it altogether.
