Linux Kernel Launches Hardware Management Features - page 5
Preparing for Liftoff
Now you have a pretty good idea of what it takes to make that little icon pop up on your desktop when you attach a new device to your system. GNOME has a nice "Removable Drives and Media" tool for managing all peripherals, including PDAs, keyboards and mice, printers, scanners, and CD/DVDs. Kubuntu's System Settings panel is a nice KDE implementation for doing the same thing. The good times for Linux are just beginning; I predict that during the next five years we're going to complete the transition from ox and cart to space shuttle.
