imo, and I've seen it stated many times, Apple's IOKit trumps linux in driver development.
this is probably my 5th comment announcing linus' increasing irrelevance to the rest of the world, but it's comments like this - a reiteration of an older one i know - that showing he's not willing to adapt to the needs of the other type of user... the commercial developer.
Linux needs a native C++ runtime to allow an easier development cycle (linux-macos drivers!)... we're bitching we cant get drivers out on time, but we're not exactly helping the hw developers!
iirc, someone did write a cpp runtime and model for 2.4... shame it didn't catch on.
