Is there a plan about Linux changes? I just found a 'final word' about
udev vs. devfs that was written almost two years ago. (*)

Well it looks as if udev has been implemented for two years now and many
distros start to enforce the use of udev now (two years seem to be a
common interval).
I suppose that most users use cdrecord through k3b and k3b's Author is
much more willing to adapt his software to changes in Linux. I did not
encounter any problems using it after changing to udev which will
probably save you a lot of Linux problem reports.
