Hmm, so does that mean that unless things change drastically one way or the other, laptop users with PCMCIA cards will not be able to migrate to 2.4 when it is released?

This reasoning sounds remarkably similar to the bad feelings surrounding the network driver changes in the late 2.3 kernels and the Donald Becker crafted generic network drivers (like the eepro100 for instance).

I hope this does not degenerate into a similar situation.

Isn't there some sort of compromise that could be reached?

This form allows you to delete, move, or copy one or more messages. You can move messages by copying and deleting the original. The action will be applied to the messages you select above and all replies to those selected messages.


If you want to copy or move messages, specify the HyperNews path of a destination forum or message that all messages will be copied or moved to. The destination must already exist, so maybe create it first.

Path of Destination (a Forum or Message): (e.g. "test")

Notify Subscribers at destination
NO


If you want to delete messages (the default), specify that here. If you want to move messages, you need to delete the original messages; placeholders will be left pointing to where they were moved.

Delete Messages
NO


Caution: After deleteing messages (the default), if you have not copied them (i.e. no destination above), then the selected messages are not be recoverable.
