Brilliant, just what the world needs, another replacement for the ip packet filtering system so we can start from scratch all over again.
And the value gained from all this reworking?

Ford said it before I could. WTF?? First ipfwadm, then ipchains, then iptables ... and they want to replace it AGAIN?!?

Sounds like someone took a compilers class and needed a project. It seems to me that adding hierarchal features to the existing system would have been a lot more helpful.

If this thing comes anywhere near the mainline kernel, they had better include an "iptables" utility that emulates the calling syntax of the old system so it doesn't break existing scripts.

(And yes, this is realistic -- what do you think "ifconfig" has been for years now?)

I've used similar syntaxes in advance with ferm as a frontend to iptables.

you might have noticed the post in the followups from the ferm developer.

Probably having a system like that in the kernel makes it possible to have the syntax more persistant with whats happening in the kernel than ferm is able to by just flattening your firewall concept into iptables rules.

Its not like either of those would be hyper innovative, OpenBSD has similar concepts for ages.

btw, defacto ifconfig is obsoleted, by ip. the command of iproute2 (though the syntax and the use is hell complicated)...

I'd rather like a syntax like ferm for that too (did you ever read through lartc.org?)

don't forget the virus scanners, so that 50% of the computing power gets wasted on them.

For those of you who run mail servers ... a few notes from the trenches:

1. DSBL is gone. Turns out they've been gone for a long time. Lookups will fail. There's a blog at http://dsbl.org now, where they're bitching about people still trying to use it. I suppose if they really wanted people to unconfigure it quickly, they ought to put an RBL there that always returns positive for any IP address. That would make people take action really quickly.

2. If you were using the Spamhaus RBL at sbl-xbl.spamhaus.org, you probably want to switch to zen.spamhaus.org instead. The latter is a combination of their SBL, XBL, and PBL lists. (PBL is the list that now includes all that annoying Amazon EC2 cloud that they're happy to rent out to spammers.)

And THAT's what kills me. All these dumb ass punks who think the solution to everything is to start all over agian.
I agree that in some cases, like sendmail is a good example, you do need to start over.
Postfix good, and you can add to it. But I'll bet you anything, some punkass schmuck will come along ina a few years and say , postfix is too old we need to rewrite it.
cvs->svn is the perfect example of my point. I know you've all heard it, but I can't stop getting mad about that. Instead of making it better, they fixed 3 things and made everything else worse. ARRRRRGGGGGHHHHH FUCK!

Which brings up a good point.
Might it not make sense to merge the functionalty of iptables and route?

Heh, we were doing a maintenance at the exact time they turned their system off.
Took us forever to figure out that it wasn't our maintenance that caused all of our mail delays.

This is part of my problem with open source in general. Forks, re-writes, etc.

It's maddening.

More proof that monopolies are good.

also proof that a lot of smart people with no coordination make for a really shitty system overall.

Suck it may but I can still write a windows32 program with what I learned in 1995.
NOTHING written for linux in 1995 will compile on ANYTHING linux nowadays.

Which brings up apple.

Why can't apple break the 10% market share.
Do they even want to? Get big market share and you become a target of virus writers and being #1 just means everybody pecks at your feet.
So is apple being smart or are they just too hamfisted to really succeed? Or have they succeeded.

Brother in law points this out: They've done it all, the mp3 player, the video gizmo, the phone the wifi gadget.
What else can they do? Sure there's going to be some new gizmo out someday but is apple going to be able to dominate it?
Seems like there's more down ahead of them than up.

It depends really..... I own 4 or 5 Macs.... And I had an iPhone, and I've owned several generations of iPod's. I really like Apple's products recently.
And I'm a guy, who if you asked me about Apple before OSX came out, I would have laughed out loud.

They've been growning, and I think I've read numbers in the 15-17% range of the market....


They make a good product. Period. I never feel constricted when I'm working on the Mac. Windows is a horror. Linux, everything feels like a compromise.
And switching between Linux versions? Ugh. Everyone does somethine a bit different, and it's annoying. It's much like the old Unix days. Solaris was different than AIX, which was different that HP/UX, etc. And it was always in small, annoying ways.

I've found that my Mac's have let me just get work done. I don't feel the need to rebuild (Windows) or re-arrange/upgrade (Linux) constantly, like I did in the past.

Really, the question for Apple is whether they can continue to offer a great user experience for reasonable cost, especially without Jobs at the helm.
